The University of Scranton announced that the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that the university’s online Master of Science in Human Resources degree fully aligns with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.

The Society for Human Resource Management is the world’s largest human resource membership organization for human resource management, and only 352 programs in 264 educational institutions globally have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by human resources students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010 and 2013, the guidelines align with SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define human resource education standards taught in university business schools and help guide universities to develop degree programs that mirror these high standards.

“The Society for Human Resource Management’s recognition of our Master of Science in Human Resources program speaks to the outstanding efforts of our faculty and illustrates that each graduate of the program is properly prepared to meet the daily demands of the industry,” stated Dr. William Wallick, associate professor and director of the graduate human resources program at The University of Scranton.

  •     Recognizing and resolving complicated ethical issues before they negatively impact employees or the organization,

  •     Learning in the context of the workplace,
