What is a human resources degree?

A human resources degree is an academic degree awarded to students when they complete a two or four-year program with a focus on human resources or human resources management.

Generally, undergraduate HR programs provide students a learning foundation needed to help manage and develop diverse workforces. A company's human resources department oversees almost everything related to employees from recruitment, hiring, and training to employee motivation, retention, benefits, and other services. That is why HR courses are focused on providing leadership, interpersonal, organizational, and problem-solving skills needed to help companies and their employees be successful.
