In-Depth Look at Education & Training

The educational backgrounds of human resources, training, and labor relations managers and specialists vary considerably, reflecting the diversity of duties and levels of responsibility.

Education and training. Although a bachelor's degree is a typical path of entry into these occupations, many colleges and universities do not offer degree programs in personnel administration, human resources, or labor relations until the graduate degree level.

Courses in labor law, collective bargaining, labor economics, and labor history also provide a valuable background for the prospective labor relations specialist.
