Curtin’s sought after human resources degrees use real-world case studies to prepare graduates for complex and fast-changing organisational climates in Australia and worldwide. They feature both guided independent study and team projects, and offers networking opportunities for you to further prepare you for changing labour markets in Australia and worldwide.
Flexible course duration
Our programs are modular, which means you can start your studies with a graduate certificate and graduate in as little as six months, ready to apply your learnings in the workplace immediately or progress your studies through to a graduate diploma and receive credit for your completed graduate certificate.
Technological change and workforce change is resulting in a growing demand for Human Resource professionals with a diverse range of skills1. Salaries are reflecting this shift in expertise with the average salary for a HR Manager sitting at $121,877 per year2. The Employment Placement and Recruitment Services industry in Australia generates $15 billion revenue3 and employment for HR professionals is expected to grow strongly with around 59,000 job openings over the next 5 years4.
Jenny Lu, Master of Human Resources
I chose the Master of Human Resources at Curtin because the program is practical and taught by experienced HR practitioners and researchers. The program provided me with both theoretical and practical experience, and an in-depth, holistic understanding of each component of HR. What I enjoyed most about the program was learning from each guest speaker, unit coordinator and student.
