If you already have a Bachelor’s degree, earning your Human Resource Management Certificate online through Linfield College's Online and Continuing Education Program will demonstrate your accomplishments in this field. Our program is designed to complement any previous education you may have had. In addition, students may earn the HRM Certificate before they complete their Bachelor’s degree to bolster their resume and professional accomplishments immediately.

We also encourage students with little educational experience in the field to pursue an HRM Certificate simultaneously with a Bachelor’s degree in the following areas:

  • Accounting
  • Business Information Systems
  • Marketing
  • International Business
  • Nursing
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Arts and Humanities

Students are not permitted to pursue an HRM certificate and bachelor’s degree in management simultaneously, as they share the same core courses.
