Undergraduate Programs
Human Resource Management

Human resource management majors focus on the management of human resources in organizations: on the role and development of the manager as a leader, and on the mission and specific functions of the human resources department.

Courses in the human resource management major, augmented by offerings in psychology, sociology, and economics, prepare the student for two broadly defined career paths. The first, a general managerial orientation designed to build skills in analyzing and effectively dealing with individuals in the work place, concentrates on topics of motivation, organization design, leadership, and development of interpersonal skills. The second orientation provides techniques essential to successful careers in human resources management. It stresses selection and training techniques, human resources planning, compensation, labor relations, and training and evaluation. Neither area is exclusive and exposure to both is often suggested.
