The Department of Employment Relations and Health Services Administration offers a graduate program within the College of Health and Human Services leading to the degree of master of arts in Human Resources and Employment Relations. The 36-credit program consists of a required core of 21 credits, including an elective thesis and elective course offerings totaling 15 credits. Internships are available and strongly encouraged.

The program is multidisciplinary, combining analytical and human relations skills with knowledge drawn from social sciences and business disciplines. The degree is designed to prepare professional employment and labor relations practitioners in public and private management, unions, neutral agencies, government agencies, and arbitration panels.

While the department does not offer course work leading to an undergraduate major or degree, it does offer several undergraduate courses that are open to students of any major or college.
