Utah State University to Launch New Master of Science in Human Resources Program Online

Utah State University's Jon M. Huntsman School of Business will next month launch a new online Master of Science in Human Resources (MSHR) degree program. The program, which will offer 12, seven-week courses, is designed to help students living in rural areas further their careers in human resources.

"Utah State University has offered distance education for more than 25 years," said Douglas D. Anderson, dean of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University, in a prepared statement. "By first utilizing a broadcast network and now through online platforms, USU is meeting the needs of Utah's students who are unable to attend an on-campus program. With the rapid advances in online instruction, we are now able to extend our reach even further to offer our MSHR degree to more students throughout Utah and beyond."

Dallas, TX-based Academic Partnerships will provide the technology, marketing, student recruitment, and faculty support for the business school's new program. Course materials will be delivered through Canvas learning management system.

The Huntsman School of Business, one of eight colleges at Utah State University, offers ten undergraduate degree and six graduate degree programs. The Logan, UT-based school is one of the oldest continuously running business colleges in the Western United States, according to the school's Web site.
