Human Resource Management

The Human Resources Management Minor prepares business majors to successfully manage an effective and efficient workforce. Students learn to manage diversity in the workforce and to develop the talents of their staff members. Additional skills in leadership, negotiations, and managing teams in a global environment prepare students for careers as a Human Resource Manager, talent acquisition specialist, corporate recruiter, compensation analyst, or benefits administrator.


A minor must contain 15-18 semester hours of coursework, including at least 9 hours of upper-division courses at the 3000-4000 level. Courses taken to satisfy Core Areas A through E may not be counted toward completion of the minor, but courses taken in Core Area F may be used to fulfill minor requirements.
