B.S. in Human Resource Management

With human resources becoming an increasingly strategic function of many organizations, human resource professionals need the skills required to work effectively in a continually changing environment.

At Saint Mary's, we recognize that success often depends on your personal and professional schedule. That is why we have three options for you to choose from to create your own student-led experience. For those who enjoy the classroom, and the ability to create in-person collaboration, we offer a fully on-ground experience. If you prefer taking some courses on-ground and others online, we offer a blended experience. Finally, if your choice is to take the major courses online, you have that option as well. Whichever option will fit your needs!

Finish your degree faster with our accelerated degree plan, saving you time and money.
