A minor in Human Resource Management (HRM) prepares students for careers in HRM. Human resource managers have responsibilities related to recruiting and selecting employees, designing and managing pay and benefits, and employee performance management. An HRM minor is  helpful to students who plan to work in a small business where owners/managers have broad managerial responsibilities, including management of employees. An HRM minor is also helpful for students in Science, Engineering and Nursing who manage teams of employees.

Students electing a minor may use the courses completed in their Charger Foundations as part of the required hours in a minor. Students may also use relevant courses to meet the requirements in their major.
NOTE: This minor is not available to students pursuing a Management Major with a Human Resource Management Concentration within the BSBA degree.
