The Master of Science in Human Resource Management degree program is recognized as being fully aligned with the curriculum guidebook of the Society for Human Resource Management® (SHRM®). Our students learn how to consider the perspectives of employees and employers, the ways to effectively manage people, and the importance of employee engagement and development. Students study trends that managers and employees are likely to face in the future, and learn about legal requirements in dealing with employees.

Some students in the program choose to take an internship in Human Resources Management, in lieu of one course, which allows them to gain meaningful "hands-on" HR experience. In some cases, these internships parlay into a job offer upon completion of the degree.
