Bachelor of Science in Human Resources
The Geneva College Adult Degree Completion Program's human resources degree prepares students to work as human resource generalists and also as effective managers or supervisors in other areas of an organization. The Geneva College Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCP) was founded to help busy adults accept the challenge of completing a bachelor’s degree.

In addition to online options, the ADCP continues to provide the adults of western Pennsylvania with a challenging, biblically based and convenient classroom education. Geneva has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1922.
