Course content

Human resources professionals are increasingly becoming an integral part of an organization’s strategic planning process. MTSU’s new Human Resources Leadership concentration allows working professionals to earn a Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.) around their schedules and boost their careers through a 24/7 online program. The 33-hour degree plan culminates with a professional project, typically related to the student’s work. Company executives today are turning to HR professionals for policy directives and creative ways to use human capital for improved performance results. The HR Leadership coursework focuses on a variety of workplace factors (economic, environmental, ethical, legal, political, and administrative) and the impact they can have on organizational productivity, performance, and behavior. The program helps students build a strong foundation in HR principles and procedures and develop critical thinking skills required to make decisions and solve problems concerning the human side of an organization.

MTSU offers the Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.), an online program designed for working professionals, with three concentrations available: Human Resources Leadership, Strategic Leadership, and Training and Development.

Each M.P.S. program consists of 9 hours of core requirements, 21 hours related directly to the concentration, and a 3-hour culminating professional project.
The Human Resources Leadership master’s degree is designed for working professionals interested in recruiting, selection, and retention of human capital, compensation, and benefits, and other areas of human resources management. National job growth for human resources managers is higher than all other professions on average, and median annual pay was $102,780 in 2014 for human resources managers. A master’s offers a competitive edge in a competitive field.
