The Human Resources Law and Compliance Certificate is structured for working professionals who wish to take one or two courses per term in an online or on-campus format. Students are expected to enroll each semester until the program is complete.
USC Gould School of Law students who select the Human Resources Law and Compliance Certificate as part of our online or on campus LLM, MDR, or MSL programs will take each of their courses in the corresponding modality.
Both the online and on-campus 12-unit Human Resources Law and Compliance Certificate program require the following mandatory and elective courses to earn the certificate.
Applicants to the standalone certificate program must have earned an undergraduate degree, which can be in any field of study, prior to the time they begin the certificate program. Prior exposure to or experience in law is not required. The Admissions Committee will consider applicants' grades, course work, work experience and reasons for pursuing the certificate program when determining admission.
Candidates pursuing the on-campus certificate as part of their MSL or MDR degrees must take certificate courses concurrent with their degrees.
