Human Resources Option

Students in human resources management study how organizations attract, motivate, develop, and retain employees, and how they interact with organizations representing employees. Topics covered include recruiting, external and internal staffing, compensation theory and administration, performance management, training and development, labor-management relations, and equal employment opportunity. This concentration is pursued by students seeking staff jobs in the human resources department, supervisory and team leader jobs, and entry into management training programs that precede job placement. It is appropriate for those who seek positions in both public and private sector organizations.

A student must take a minimum of 12 credits, distributed as follows:
