Human Resources

Human Resources Degrees, Human Resources Education, Human Resources Schools


The category of human resources often includes specialization in fields such as Placement, Employee Relations, EEO Officers, and Compensation Specialists.


In a small organization, a Human Resources Generalist may handle all aspects of Human Resources work, and thus require an extensive range of knowledge. The responsibilities of Human Resources Generalists can vary widely, depending on their employer’s needs.


A Bachelor’s Degree will be essential for entry into this field.  In a traditional school, obtaining the degree would take four years.  If you are returning to school, the transfer of credits should work well because it is a non-technical position and you may be able to complete your studies over a much briefer period.
