Yes! At DeVry, our Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management can be earned online. This can be an excellent option for people who are looking to add a credential to their resume but have other ongoing commitments, such as full-time work or raising a family that would make it difficult to attend onsite classes. Best of all, the courses you take within the online HR certificate program, are the same as in our onsite program. There is no difference between the certificate that you can earn from an onsite or online human resources certificate program.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for human resources specialists is expected to grow on a national level by 8% between 2021 and 2031 and is anticipated to result in the addition of 70,200 jobs2. If you have an interest in helping businesses and employees meet their goals by working together, then a career in HR could be a good fit for you.

A graduate certificate and a master's degree are both graduate level credentials, but they are not the same. For instance, a graduate certificate in human resources may take, on average, less time to earn than a master's degree in human resources. At DeVry, we offer stackable degree options that enable you to leverage credits earned through a graduate certificate program toward a master's degree in a related field, should you choose to continue your education at DeVry in the future1.
While these credentials are distinct from one another, both may help you learn valuable skills in your field.
