The Master of Science in Human Resource Development degree is a generalist program that provides students with a comprehensive overview of the HR field. The courses provide a practical environment where students have the opportunity to perform many of the business activities that practitioners regularly encounter.
Each of the four HRD certificates allow for students to develop a specialization in an area of HR: HR Leadership, HR Business Partner, Organization Development and HR Analytics & Research. Certificates can be completed independently, or in conjunction with the MS degree. Click below to view details for each certificate.
For current Villanova undergraduates, we offer two combined Bachelors/Masters program options:
In both programs, students take both graduate and undergraduate courses during their senior year. Several graduate courses count for both graduate and undergraduate credit.
