Advanced Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management

New Progam Format

The Advanced Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management was designed to provide HR practitioners with the necessary knowledge to make informed management and policy decisions.

This program has been updated for Spring 2022. Students who were matriculated prior to Spring 2022 can follow the program outlined below or can follow the legacy program requirements. Please consult your HRM advisor if you have questions.

Certificate credits may also be used to fulfill requirements in either the Master of Science in Human Resource Management  or   Master of Arts in Liberal Studies  program offered through the School of Professional Development, or the Master of Business Administration offered through the College of Business. (Be advised that not all courses count for both programs. Students should compare the degree and certificate requirements prior to enrolling.)
