You'll gain a comprehensive understanding of human resource functions—such as resource planning; recruitment, selection, placement, and orientation of employees; training and career development; labor relations; performance appraisal and rewards programs; and development of personnel policies and procedures—in private- and public-sector settings. Additionally, you'll explore the ways that human behavior, laws, labor relations, and diversity issues can intersect and affect a company's culture and ultimately its progress.
We work closely with the federal government and the Society of Human Resource Management to align our courses in the human resource management degree with employers' expectations and required competencies, so we'll teach you the exact skills employers tell us they want.
