M.S. Program

The Master’s program focuses on transferring advanced knowledge about current theory and research in HRLD into practical applications. The program helps students develop and strengthen professional competency that effectively matches their special needs and career objectives. 
The graduate programs in HRLD have achieved a “superior” rating (the highest possible) in LSU’s rigorous program review process.  It is generally viewed as one of the top programs in the U.S.

The program is specially designed to meet the needs of working adult students as well as full-time students. All graduate courses are taught in the evening from 4:30 – 7:30 pm.  Because so many working professionals are enrolled in the program, classes are a dynamic adult learning environment in which students share experiences from a wide variety of organizational settings and apply new learning to those environments. Students learn from each other as much as from the professors.

Faculty advisors play as facilitator role to motivate students' learning and prepare for career planning.
Highlights include:
  • preparation for Human Resource, Leadership and Organization Development careers
  • strong commitment to linking theory to practice
  • a flexible curriculum to meet your career objectives
  • develops research skill for advanced study
