About Human Resources Management

The Anisfield School of Business Minor in Human Resource Management prepares students to have the knowledge, skills, tools, and competencies required to undertake and understand how to effectively manage human resources.

Human Resource Management is an inherently interdisciplinary applied discipline that builds on the foundations of psychology and business administration as well as the liberal arts and humanities. Students majoring in any subject will benefit from both the required and elective courses which cover principles of “maximizing human capital”. Students who combine a Human Resource Management minor with a management and/or psychology major will be well qualified for graduate education, masters or doctoral programs in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and Management and/or a career as a human resource professional. These students will also be acquiring the foundational knowledge that will prepare them to take professional certification exams offered by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the HR Certification Institute. Given the demand for human resource professionals in a broad range of for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises, minoring in Human Resource Management is both a practical and savvy academic choice.
