BLUFFTON LAUNCHES ADULT BACHELOR DEGREE COMPLETION PROGRAM IN HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
Bluffton University will begin offering its second adult bachelor degree completion program in August 2006 - human resource management. Students will attend classes one night a week and earn their degree in as little as four semesters.
The new program is designed for working adults who have a minimum of 54 semester hours (81 quarter hours) of college credit. Additionally, the students need to be employed or actively involved in the human resource function of an organization or have received some professional or academic training in human resource management. Classes will be offered on the Bluffton University campus.
Ted Bible, adult and graduate education director at Bluffton said, "We are very excited about this new degree opportunity for our region, in part due to the great focus group involvement we had from human resource professionals from our local hospitals, the Lima and Findlay Chapters of the Society of Human Resource Management, the Allen Economic Development Group, Rhodes State College and many other individuals and companies who see a significant need in our region for this degree program."
Classes are cohort based, limited to 20 students and will emphasize interactive, experiential learning with a curriculum designed to help students develop the knowledge, skills and compassion that will contribute to their leadership roles within an organization. Classes will meet 6-10 p.m. one night a week.
