If you are applying to MSU as a future undergraduate student, please visit MSU Admissions at https://admissions.msu.edu/. You will be prompted to send your transcripts through the MSU Admissions application packet.

You have until the end of your first semester in the MHRLR program to complete any outstanding prerequisites. This means you can still apply and be considered for admission into the MHRLR program, by sending an email with your plan to complete any remaining prerequisites at a local community college or at MSU. If you would like to have your unofficial transcript reviewed to confirm if you have the prerequisites, please email mzaremba@msu.edu.

Following are the prerequisites for the Master of HRLR program (you will want to have earned a 3.0, B, grade or above):

  • One Behavioral Science course (course options include psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology, or philosophy)
  • One Statistics course
  • One Micro-Economics course

Admission into the MHRLR program is determined by a careful case-by-case review of each applicant's credentials. There are two admission procedures: a general admissions procedure available to any applicant and one for those with five or more years of meaningful work experience.
