Graduate Studies in Human Resource Development

Villanova University's affordable graduate programs in Human Resource Development (HRD) have provided professionals the expertise for dynamic careers.

Our program's balance of theory and practicum, along with faculty who are active in the industry, provides a focus on emerging trends in this dynamic field to prepare our students for success. HRD fosters development of knowledge and skills that can be applied to the rapidly changing field, from law and regulation to human behavior and business.

Over the past three decades, graduates of Villanova's programs have pursued careers in all areas of HR across the world.

The graduate programs in Human Resource Development invite you to join the over 2000 graduates who have cited their academic journey at Villanova as one of the best professional decisions they have made.
