Curriculum

In this capstone course, students apply newly learned human resource skills towards solving real-life HR problems. Through teamwork exercises and a comprehensive case study, students build effective HR tools that they can bring into their own professional practice. Open only to those who have completed the first five courses or former graduates of the HR Professional Certificate Program.

The capstone class is a culmination of the 5 previous HR courses and requires a group project.  Because this is a concentrated course, attendance is mandatory in order to receive the professional certificate.

Testimonials

“The CCSU HR Professional Certificate Program is awesome. I really enjoyed the final Capstone Presentation. Since I am just starting my HR career, public speaking is an area I am not very comfortable with. I know that practice makes perfect, and I am lucky that this program allows me to do so. I have so many take-aways from this past year and am looking forward to using this new knowledge in my current HR role.” Fall, 2022

“This program enhanced my knowledge in the Human Resources field and motivated me to seek positions of higher responsibilities.  The professors were true experts in their fields and I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to attend these courses. “  Elizabeth R.

“I am now working in the Human Resource Department as the HR Associate.  In this role, I assist the department in onboarding and recruitment, training, benefits administration, and day to day operations.  It was a temp to hire position, and I started in June. As of next week, I will be an official employee! I am really enjoying it, and credit my studies at CCSU in helping me land this job; the courses were informative without being overwhelming, and the professors truly cared about students’ understanding and success. I keep in touch with many of the professors and my classmates!”  Andrea M.

Taking the Integrated HR capstone class has helped tremendously in strengthening my knowledge.  It touched on every are of HR and is very beneficial to my current role.  Thank You, Opal
