Lectures, hands-on exercises and an optional co-op provide you with excellent preparation for a career in human resources.

Advanced HR skills and training

Study human resources topics that aren’t taught in our two-year diploma program, including how to manage HR data using current Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) software. Third-year HR courses also develop foundational skills such as learning and development, total rewards management, employment law, managing in unionized workplaces and HR planning.

Complete CHRP coursework and work towards your degree

Many employers today seek HR workers who hold a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation from the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA). When you complete this program, you may have fulfilled the HRPA’s CHRP coursework requirement and be eligible to take your Comprehensive Knowledge Exam 1. You may also be able to apply some credits towards our HR management degree.

Graduate with hands-on experience

Sheridan is well-known in the HR industry for producing job-ready graduates. Lectures from our expert professors are supported by case studies, simulations and group work opportunities. You can also gain real-world industry experience by participating in an optional co-op placement.

Make industry connections

Start building relationships in the human resources field while you’re still in school! You’ll have the opportunity to attend various industry network events throughout your program. Sheridan also has an extremely active Human Resources Student Association that participates in many case competitions, workshops and social events each year.
