Career Opportunities for Majors in Human Resource Management


A Bachelor of Arts in Human Resource Management (HRM) is a multidisciplinary major that draws heavily from business strategy, psychology, economics, and sociology. A Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Resource Management gives students the knowledge and skills to: help organizations get the most value from their employees, help managers understand how to lead their employees most effectively, and help employees understand how to succeed in the modern organization.

Entry level workers who have graduated with a bachelor’s degree in HRM usually enter formal or on-the-job training programs. Later, they may advance to a managerial position, overseeing a major element of the human resource function. A master's degree or higher is desirable for individuals seeking these and general top management positions.

Regardless of your career aspirations, increase your marketability to em ployers through internships, related work experience, good grades, advanced coursework, and involvement in campus activities. Many careers do not require a specific major, but rather a wide range of demonstrated skills, accomplishments, and related work experience while in school
