Human Resource Development (HRD), as defined by the HRD faculty at Texas A&M University, is the process of improving learning and performance in individual, group, and organizational contexts through domains of expertise such as adult and lifelong learning, adult and workforce education and development, career development, training and development, and organizational development. Interested students have opportunities for international travel, professional presentations and writing for publication.

While students who pursue AE emphasis can complete this degree entirely online, HRD emphasis students can either finish it face-to-face or through distance education. This EHRD program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous or synchronous distance education technology. Although a final exam is not required for this degree, individuals must compile a professional portfolio documenting degree progress submitted in the last semester of coursework.
