Human Resource Management

The Human Resource Management Minor prepares business majors to successfully recruit select, train, and develop effective and efficient workforce talent. Students learn to manage diversity in the workforce and to develop talents of all staff and team members. Additional skills in leadership, negotiations, employment law, and managing global teams 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.
