Master of Human Resource Management

The Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) degree consists of graduate-level courses designed for professionals seeking a deeper theoretical and practical understanding of management principles related to human resources.

Courses examine traditional functions such as recruitment and retention, development and compensation and benefits. The program also covers emerging disciplines like HR information systems and leadership theory, the impact of globalization and workforce diversity.

The MHRM requires 36 semester hours of graduate coursework split between six core courses and six focus courses. The degree does not require a thesis, and we accept up to six semester hours of applicable transfer work.
