SUMMARY

Choosing to study Human Resources is a valuable choice and often a critical first step for undergrads endeavoring to begin a career as a senior human resources consultant, a human resource advisor, or a psychiatrist. Interestingly, human resources is a fairly common choice coming in at the 40th most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 11,757 human resources graduates. In-state tuition for human resources at private schools is, on average, 3.1 times more costly than their public counterparts.

There are 427 universities that offer human resources. 427 colleges is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other human resources majors, consider universities in Michigan which have more undergraduates admitted to human resources than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to get a degree in human resources is in the Mid East region with University of Maryland Global Campus, Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and Cornell University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to major in human resources is the Big Ten Conference with University of Iowa, Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus representing the conference. Based on our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our selection for the best university for human resources is Cornell University.

The 'best' school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There can be lots of facets to think about when deciding on school. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could refashion your decision of where to go to school. At authority.org, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which human resources university boasts the best college campus, the answer is Rutgers University-New Brunswick. If, for example, you are very interested in which school is home to the finest campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more so we can evaluate every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and from that list, our pick of the school with the best student life for human resources is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Continue reading to find out more about our top selections. Many of our picks will probably shock you.

If cost is a primary deciding factor in your choice of where you attend university, you might be cautious about George Washington University. George Washington University appears to be our most expensive school for human resources, at least regarding out of state students. We do have an entire page for the most expensive schools that could put the expense at George Washington University into perspective. Additionally, you could be interested to know that human resources is the 117th most expensive major in the US, with an average associated cost of $37,300. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for human resources on our list is District of Columbia with expenses at the primary school, George Washington University, of $54,453. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for human resources is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with George Washington University with a cost of $54,453, Cornell University with a cost of $56,550, and Saint Joseph's University with a cost of $46,350.

Our cheapest region for human resources is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, Western Governors University with a cost of $6,380, and Colorado State University-Global Campus with a cost of $8,400. On the bright side, the most affordable university for human resources is Johnson & Wales University-Online. Authority.org's comprehensive list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $10,000 for a degree in human resources. That price swells substantially to an average of $21,200 for the out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the college representing the best value for human resources: Cornell University. On this page you can see our comprehensive list of the colleges we believe to be the best value overall. That being said, this list is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for human resources students vary a lot, but within two-years of completing the major students will regularly earn around $52,200. There can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top positions can make up to $96,600. Right out of college, the lowest earning opportunities within the human resources field earn $27,900, which could be worse. The highest earning grads for human resources have come from Cornell University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The overall diversity of human resources is decent, coming within the 56th percentile of all majors. The school with the most composite diversity for human resources is Johnson & Wales University-Online and here you can find our general list for the colleges which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Human Resources only ranks within the 27th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 52nd percentile. White students make up the largest proportion at 62% of students studying human resources. Additionally, 67% of undergraduates pursuing a human resources degree are women.

The median ranking of human resources' professors is 4 stars, a ranking that is actually the average across every major; this is a fine. If you are curious about the most popular human resources professor in the country, consider looking up Bill Sokol from San Francisco State University. It might come as a surprise, but the highest ranked human resources instructors by student come from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. If we including data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing the best professors for human resources is Northwestern University. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the top examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for human resources is Northwestern University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have an extensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you believe that approaching university through a lens mainly built on superlatives might create problems. We at Authority encourage you to read our other pages on different schools and read some of our informative background 'blog posts' on beneficial details to look out for as your university search develops.
