Businesses today are recognizing the importance of employee development and training. There's an increasing demand for human resource professionals who can design and implement training programs and establish a learning dynamic for the entire organization. The University of Findlay has responded to this demand by creating a highly marketable major tailored to both traditional and non-traditional students.

Building on the strong foundation of the Master of Arts in Education Program, the Human Resource Development Strand features courses with a focus on employee education. They will provide you with the knowledge base, skills, training and practical experience necessary to work in a variety of settings.
