Learn specific concepts and skills that are important and valuable in today’s rapidly changing business environments with a Human Resources Management major or minor

While most students choose this major to become human resources professionals, others do so to better prepare themselves for careers in the general field of management. 

The human resource approach to managing people focuses on benefiting organizations in two significant ways: by increasing organizational effectiveness and productivity and by satisfying employees’ needs.

Human Resources Management Program Details

Featuring a common business core that integrates the various strategic areas of business, our Human Resources program will prepare you for the next step in your career, whether you're looking to become a generalist in human resources, to specialize in a certain field within human resources, such as areas such as organization development, training and development, labor relations, and compensation and benefits, or to succeed in the general field of management. 

Students are advised to take at least one internship field work experience. These internships are available in major business and nonprofit organizations and allow students to learn more about specific areas within human resources.
