Human Resource Management


Bachelor of Arts — Program Overview

Think "human resources." Chances are, you're picturing piles of paychecks and paperwork. But what if we told you today's HR professionals are running companies, transforming organizations and pioneering modern business strategies? They are, and so can you!

Get a degree in human resource management, and learn how to manage an organization’s most important resource — its people.

EARN A QUALITY DEGREE. Our curriculum follows guidelines set and approved by The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world's largest human resource association. You can even join Briar Cliff's own student SHRM chapter.

LEARN FROM THE BEST. In our HR program, you'll learn the latest trends and best practices in employment relationships, benefits, prevailing laws, labor relations and recruitment. And you'll be taught by veteran faculty who know you by name, not a number.

BECOME WANTED. Thanks to an ever-evolving business climate, a qualified H.R. professional is more vital now than ever — just ask the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
