Human Resource Management

The Major

Why Study Human Resource Management?
Human Resource Management involves the activities needed to attract, develop, and maintain an effective workforce in an organization.  The Human Resource Management option develops skills in the wide range of activities involved in talent acquisition and management - planning, forecasting, selection, training, performance appraisal, salary and benefits administration, and disciplinary procedures.  Students also focus on current trends such as workforce diversity, labor scarcity, employment-at-will, unionization, and flexible benefits and scheduling options.

Human Resource Management students and faculty are very involved in the local Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) chapters, and the Winthrop student SHRM chapter continues to win awards for their service to and advancement of the HR profession. 

Students who pursue this option participate in HR job-shadowing and internship opportunities to gain real-world experience in the profession, and thereby receive great HR job offers upon graduation.
