In addition, we have partnered with local organizations such as The Amherst Chamber of Commerce, The Clarence Chamber of Commerce, The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce, BNHRA, JHRM and The Buffalo Niagara Partnership to bring real-world experiences to the Human Resource Administration Program. A second semester internship with a local business will provide the opportunity to apply the concepts that you have learned from your studies to real workplace situations.

The program includes 35 credit hours of coursework for the certificate over two semesters. The course selection is a mix of specially selected courses in business and human resources - giving you the skills you need to succeed in the business world. Human Resource Management students are also invited to join our student chapter of SHRM, the largest professional HR program organization in the world.

A Human Resource certificate student will have the option of also receiving an Associate's degree.  Due to the nature of the program, a student may enroll in this option after the Human Resource certificate is earned, not concurrently.  This is to ensure that students take the certificate in a cohort and in the proper sequence.
