INTRODUCTION

The graduate program in human resource development is offered in the Department of Human Resource Development and Performance Technologies. 

The master of science degree in human resource development for higher education and industry is designed for individuals seeking positions involving the development of people in work roles in industry, government, and higher education, and has two options. One option is to increase specialization in the area of current employment through selected courses in other disciplines. The second is to conduct research through a thesis. The degree program is open to persons who do not have an undergraduate degree in human resource development. Human Resource Development 605 may be required to meet undergraduate deficiencies. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Applicants will meet the regular admission standards of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and the following minimum standards for regular admission to any master’s degree program in the College of Technology:

  1. Graduation with a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by an appropriate association such as the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
  2. An undergraduate record with no deficiencies in the areas chosen for study and the completion of any undergraduate courses that may be needed for preparation for specific graduate courses as determined by advisement.
  3. International students must meet the regular admission requirements of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies, including a minimum score of 550 on the TOEFL test. (Students who possess a degree from an American university are not required to take the TOEFL.)

Students with undergraduate grade point averages between 2.25 and 2.7 may petition the College of Technology Graduate Committee for conditional admission. Specific conditions will be clearly identified at the time of admission by the coordinator of the respective technology degree programs. No student may satisfactorily complete a technology degree program without first receiving regular admission.

Prospective students who have completed other undergraduate programs may request evaluation of their programs of preparation for identification of deficiencies, the removal of which, with undergraduate courses, would qualify them for admission.
