PACE Master's Degree - Training and Development Theme

This theme was designed by educators and Training and Development professionals using the Association for Talent Development's (ATD) Competency Model. The program is designed to meet the needs of educators who work in the business community or government agencies as trainers, training managers, training consultant, teachers, human resource and staff development personnel, and management development consultants.

Students wishing to specialize in Training and Development must complete the PACE core courses, culminating experience, and 25 additional credits (see Program of Study).

These courses are highly recommended:

These courses are complementary to the recommended courses, although you may choose electives outside of the theme, including graduate level courses from outside the ELP department:
