Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management (HRM Executive Program)
The Human Resource Management Executive Program is a nontraditional bachelor's degree program designed for the working adult student. Individuals seeking admission to the program are generally expected to be above 23 years of age and have completed two years of college study with a minimum GPA of 2.0 on suggested entrance competencies. The HRM program is focused on the working adult's professional and educational goals. It is intended to provide an introduction to, and overview of, the field of human resource management. The program will benefit individuals in fields such as insurance, banking, law enforcement, sales, government, general administration or military service.
The program is designed to be completed in approximately one (1) year and will fit into the working adult's busy schedule. Classes meet one night per week, for three and one-half or four hours each session. Classes are taught sequentially. Classes generally consist of ten to twenty adults who share the same motivation and who will become a support group as students attend classes and study together.
The HRM program is comprised of coursework and a research project. Forty-eight semester hours are earned by completing the HRM modules and directed studies. Please refer to the HRM Student Handbook for more detailed information on these components.
