Human Resources Development:
Undergraduate Minor

The HRD minor is an 18-credit hour program that is technically oriented, and places particular emphasis on the skills necessary to develop and implement professional development materials and programs.  This program complements most undergraduate majors--it was designed to provide students from a wide variety of content disciplines the competencies needed to become a trainer, have enhanced career ladder opportunities, interpret and use research, develop conceptual, interpersonal, and technical leadership skills, and work with diverse populations. 

Opportunities for HRD minors include development of the following:

  • job-specific skills in instructional delivery.
  • curricular programs and materials.
  • cognitive skills in problem-solving and critical thinking.
