VUHRD Program Curricula


Master of Science

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.


HRD Certificates

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. 


Combined Programs: Bachelors/Masters

For current Villanova undergraduates, we offer two combined Bachelors/Masters program options:

  • BA in Psychology with an MS in HRD
  • BA in Interdisciplinary Studies (General Studies or Leadership Studies) with an MS in HRD

In both programs, students take both graduate and undergraduate courses during their senior year. Several graduate courses count for both graduate and undergraduate credit.
