Students in the M.Ed. in human resource and organizational development (HROD) program study a curriculum that connects academic knowledge and theories with practical application.

This program is appropriate for students who are interested in entering the field of human resource development as well as mid-career professionals who are either changing careers or who want to enhance their HRD credentials. HROD is a broad field and the M.Ed. in HROD meets provides excellent opportunities for career development.

Graduates of the HROD program will be prepared to pursue careers that emphasize training, organizational development, group facilitation, and technology for education in the workplace. Graduates of this program may also pursue doctoral degrees.

The HROD program seeks applications from graduates of accredited colleges and universities from all academic areas. This program is highly flexible and is suitable for full-time and part-time students. Courses in the HROD curriculum are offered at the Gwinnett University Center on a rotation plan that allows part-time students to complete the program of study in two years. Most of the HROD courses are also offered on evenings and weekends.

In addition to the M.Ed. in HROD, the partnering departments have other graduate degree programs that can be customized to include a strong foundation in HROD.
