Human Resource Development
The Human Resource Development (HRDV) curriculum focuses on the skills and knowledge necessary for interacting with people in various work settings.
The courses in the Human Resource Development program draw on theory from the social and behavioral sciences as well as organizational leadership. HRDV courses are designed to help students understand and address issues confronting both individuals and organizations. Coursework focuses on workplace topics such as human relations and communication, training and development, staffing skills and strategies, and leadership within the workplace.
To pursue a minor in Human Resource Development, you should first contact your academic advisor. Both your academic advisor and Advisors in the Student Services Center of University Studies will work with you to complete the process necessary to declare your minor.
