The course selection in Milton is great and the location is convenient. And if I ever need to take a class on a Saturday, I can do it at Curry’s Plymouth campus near my home.

Human Resource Management

Today's dynamic workplace and increasingly diverse workforce have created a need for professionals who can effectively manage a variety of complex human resources functions. The Human Resource Management Certificate takes a generalist approach and is designed to provide students with an understanding of the major functions of human resources including recruitment, selection, training, wage and salary administration, benefits, and legal obligations and regulations.

Who Should Pursue this Program?

  • Students with or without a bachelor's degree who are interested in pursuing a career in human resources.
  • Career changers who wish to enter the human resources field.
  • Those currently working within the field of human resources who may be seeking advancement or opportunities to broaden their knowledge of HR functions.

This program is open to students seeking a stand-alone certificate program, regardless of whether they already hold a bachelor's degree or not. Or, for those who wish to return to school to complete a bachelor's degree on a part-time basis, they may consider completing this certificate to augment their professional skills while working on degree requirements. The certificate credits may be applied toward a degree. Students who are not seeking a certificate may enroll in individual courses related to their particular needs.

What you will learn

  • The legal relationship between employer and employee, and how federal employment and labor statutes impact virtually all HR decisions that involve hiring, promotion, assignment, discipline, and discharge.
  • Job analysis and design and strategies to involve employees in ways that maximize company performance.
  • Quantitative and practical tools to develop short-term and long-term staffing plans.
  • Strategies to attract, select, and retain the best employees.
