Enhance your leadership capabilities, grow your people skills, and increase your company's bottom line by pursuing a bachelor's degree in human resource management

With a Bachelor of Science in human resource management from University of Maryland Global Campus, you'll find employment opportunities in nearly every industry. Our bachelor's degree program is perfect for those who have some experience in HR but don't have the degree, as well as those who want to transition into the HR profession.

You'll gain a comprehensive understanding of human resource functions—such as resource planning; recruitment, selection, placement, and orientation of employees; training and career development; labor relations; performance appraisal and rewards programs; and development of personnel policies and procedures—in private- and public-sector settings. Additionally, you'll explore the ways that human behavior, laws, labor relations, and diversity issues can intersect and affect a company's culture and ultimately its progress.

This program is also available as a minor.
