    DESCRIPTION
    It is not unusual for professionals in Adult Education and Human Resource Development to have earned graduate degrees in other areas, such as teaching, business and nursing. The education specialist's degree in Human Resource Development (HRD) is a post-master's degree program for experienced professionals who currently hold a graduate degree in a particular professional area but are seeking advanced competence in the management, design, delivery and evaluation of training. The EdS is not intended to constitute a second master's degree. Rather it is designed to offer practicing professionals an advanced degree option that conveys a broader understanding of technical, evaluation, and research issues affecting adult and organizational learning, perfects their skills in human resource planning and policy-making and upgrades their capacity to evaluate HRD programs and to determine learning and performance outcomes. In this program, learning and development are treated as an integral part of the larger human resource management function.
    SPECIAL ENROLLMENT ISSUES
    Although full-time students will be accommodated, the EdS program is structured to assist the part-time student who takes no more than two classes per semester and generally requires two years to complete the course requirements.
