B.S. in Human Resource Development
The Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Development (HRD) is designed for students who have an interest in Human Resource Development in both the private sector and public sector. The degree is designed to provide the knowledge and skills to succeed in a variety of roles in human resource development for business, industry and education.

These internships are designed to match the background and work interests of the students. The degree allows for a wide range of potential employment and accommodation to a diverse education professional experience.
