Human Resources Management

Learn to lead an HR team that is an organizational asset.

In just one year, Sheridan’s Human Resources Management program equips you with the skills you need to succeed as an HR leader.

A changing landscape

The role of the HR manager has grown steadily in importance. Today's HR management professionals contribute on a strategic level, dealing with talent acquisition, total rewards management, training and employee development, employment law, health and safety, labour relations, change management and HR metrics. At Sheridan, you'll learn to navigate the complexities of this role.

Co-op experience

You'll take part in one term (three to four months) of co-op placement, which may be paid or unpaid. This opportunity for real-world experience in an HR environment can be an invaluable asset to your career.

Additional certification

This program includes nine courses required by the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA). Students who achieve an average of 70% on these courses with no mark below 65% will meet the coursework requirement to write the Comprehensive Knowledge Exam (CKE), making significant progress on the path to become a Certified Human Resources Professional in Ontario.

In order to be granted the Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) designation, you must take the nine courses, pass the CKE and the Employment Law exam, and document three years' experience in HR. To qualify for the CHRL, you must also have a degree in any discipline. Requirements for the CHRL are evolving and you're urged to check the HRPA website for the latest developments.

Our professors maintain strong relationships with industry and alumni who are regularly invited to program networking events.
