Human Resources

The Human Resources major helps students develop, support, and administer personnel in business organizations. Students understand the challenges of employment and staffing; the complexities of compensation and benefits; the policies and programs that promote employee responsibility, production, and satisfaction; and the methods to hire, retain, and terminate employees based on legal policies and ethical parameters, protecting both the rights of workers and the interests of the company. They learn the role of human dynamics in coordinating, training, and supporting a diverse workforce. As coordinators of human capital, students must become adept at communication, critical thinking, and problem solving in such areas as data management, systems design, and conflict management within changing organizational structures and unstable economic conditions. Graduates are prepared for support or supervisory personnel positions in a range of corporate, civic, or nonprofit organizations, as well as for graduate study.
