Minor in Human Resource Management
The Human Resource Management minor helps to prepares students for a career in the field of human resources (HR). The program has been developed to meet the certification requirements of the Society for Human Resource Managers and will provide students with skills and knowledge related to critical HR topical areas.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that “graduates with a bachelor's degree in human resources, human resources administration, or industrial and labor relations … [have] become[s] increasingly important to the success of an organization. Some small and medium-size businesses that do not have separate human resources departments may assign various human resources responsibilities to some employees in addition to their usual responsibilities; others may contract with consulting firms to establish formal procedures and train current employees to administer programs on a long-term basis.
