Human resources

Within a human resources management major, you’ll learn about the function within an organisation that focuses on the recruitment, management, performance and training of employees. Human resources professionals have an important role to play in the success of an organisation by finding the right person for a job and then making sure the right environment exists to bring out the best in them.

The study of human resources is quite broad and professionals can specialise in various areas including recruitment; training and development; employee relations; equity and diversity; or industrial relations.
