Human Resources Management

The major in Human Resources Management teaches students interested in human resources to apply psychological concepts, theories, and methods to organizational processes with an emphasis on human resources functions. The innovative, cross-disciplinary course of study includes courses in business, economics, mathematics, and psychology. Students in this major prepare to assess and explain organizational patterns from multiple disciplinary viewpoints; they understand the importance of various technologies and their effects on human resources functions; and they develop an awareness of multicultural and global issues that relate to organizational behavior. This unique major prepares students for graduate work in human resource management or organizational psychology programs and also provides a strong quantitative and research approach to human resources, which is essential in applied organizational problem solving.

Westminster also offers a minor in human resources, which is built on coursework in Business Administration and related disciplines.
