The Human Resource Development Program has been designed to meet the needs of a specialist working in the profession.

The program combines a core curriculum with directed electives that can support the student's work background or allow the student to develop specialized areas of expertise. Content of the human resource development major is based on the disciplines of education, business, psychology, and related behavioral sciences. Required studies in the human resource development major are drawn from the competency studies from the American Society of Training and Development and the Society of Human Resource Management.

Minor Selection
