Minor in Human Resource Management

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in human resource management.

The human resource management minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by examining the human resource functions in a private- or public-sector organizational setting. These functions include human resource planning; recruitment, selection, and placement; employee appraisal and compensation; employee training and career development; management of labor relations; and development of a human resource department implementation plan.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in human resource management requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in human resource management. Any HRMN course applies. It is recommended that students take HRMN 300 and 400 for the minor (if the courses have not already applied elsewhere in the degree).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
