Why Choose the Master of Human Resources from Framingham State University?
As a public institution, our tuition costs are lower than private institutions. So, if you are paying out-of-pocket or your organization is paying, it gives far more value for the dollar. Our faculty are scholar-practitioners. That is, they understand the theory, principles, and concepts of human resource management. However, they are also practicing in the field doing every day that which they are teaching. This provides you the right balance between theory and practice. Our class sizes are small; typically 10-15 students per course. This means you will be able to engage in active discussions with fellow students who may work in the for-profit, not-for-profit, or government sectors. Also, the faculty members really get to know you and you get to know them. This is helpful for networking.
We are centrally located at the crossroads of the Mass. Turnpike, Rte. 9, and Rte. 495 nearby. We are easier to access than driving into Boston. And, if you’re in central Massachusetts, this will be a short reverse commute.
Our program is aligned with the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), which is the premier, international human resources professional association. Our courses are virtually all hybrid with one fully online. This enables you to complete much of your coursework without having to come to campus every week.
MHR In The Spotlight
"I thought I would enter the program and just keep my head down and get through the classes, and just do what I needed to do. But actually, it has been a different experience. I have become close with my classmates, as well as the faculty in the program, and I feel like it's almost a little family."
"I have learned so much from all the people in the class. Everyone comes from a different background, different age group, different experiences. Everyone is so welcoming and they're sharing."
"I think the program is right for someone who's looking to expand their career as an HR professional, who's looking to network with their peers, and is willing to get right back in the workplace and roll up their sleeves and apply their learning on-the-job."
