Top Online Colleges for Human Resources

Professionals and other nontraditional students interested in pursuing human resources degrees need not overcome the logistical challenges of studying on campus; instead, they can pursue human resources studies at colleges and universities online. The Online Education Database (OEDb) ranks the top accredited online colleges and universities offering human resources courses and human resource management degrees.

Nova Southeastern University

  • OEDb ranks Nova Southeastern University, a private research institution in Broward County, Florida, as the top online institution of higher learning in the United States in 2009. The university, accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, offers an undergraduate degree in human resource management and a graduate human resource management program.
    Students in the undergraduate program must complete 120 credit hours, including 24 in such core human resources areas as organization theory, business management and business communications. Students in the graduate program must complete 43 credit hours of graduate-level courses in several core areas, including advanced organizational development, employee relations and organization consultation.
    Nova Southeastern's centralized management system offers asynchronous (archived) lectures so students can log in and learn at their convenience.
