Overview

Due to the popularity of the Psychology and Human Resource Management course at the University of Strathclyde and performance criteria for entry into Honours (Year 4) the numbers admitted to Years 2 and 3 of the course are limited.

We also offer some of the best teaching in Human Resource Management (HRM) in both Scotland and the UK

Human Resource Management (HRM) is about the relationship between employers and employees and the ways in which people are managed in the workplace.  

This covers areas such as recruitment and selection, training and developing and managing conflict at work. These are an important part of the management process in all organisations.

Careers

As a psychology graduate, continuing your studies will help you become a professional psychologist, which can lead to working in areas such as clinical, educational or occupational psychology. Many graduates also work in research.

Other possible careers are teaching, human resource management, social work, counselling and management and professional positions throughout the private and public sectors.

Recent HRM graduates have found employment in insurance, retail, manufacturing, recruitment consultancy and in the public sector. Some are employed in jobs such as HR trainee, HR assistant and recruitment consultant while others are employed in general administration and management.

Accreditation

The Department of Human Resource Management is an accredited centre for teaching HRM. This means our postgraduate courses give students graduate membership of the leading professional body for HR managers – the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
