Subject

Human resource management

By choosing this subject as a Major you will study in depth the issues surrounding the management of people in organisations. You will learn about how individuals and organisations interact, about the nature of work and employment, and about the legal and ethical dimensions affecting employers and employees. Your Minor can be chosen from a wide range of subjects across the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences.

Modules

Year one introduces you to the core areas that make up management studies and its related specialisms, including HRM: organisation studies; accounting and finance; and marketing and consumption. You will learn about the political-economic environment in which organisations exist, and the way in which ethical questions and the particular history of the university and management education shape our understanding of management practice. In year two you will study the basics of human resource management and its key underlying theoretical approaches. You will also explore specific HRM areas such as workplace learning, training and development in depth. In your last year you will study a core module on the dissertation during your first semester. The second semester explores the context of HRM, such as the shifting boundaries between, work, employment and ‘private’ life and examines how IT development affects these boundaries. Optional modules will allow you to study other HRM-related topics.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject is much more common at postgraduate level, and so be aware that many of the good jobs in HR and personnel management go to graduates with Masters or other postgraduate qualifications in this subject. Work experience for first degree graduates can help to get around the lack of postgraduate qualifications, but if you want to go into management you might find that Masters to be an advantage. Although human resource roles are much the most common outcome for graduates from these courses, they take those jobs in an impressive array of industries so there are plenty of options for the kind of employer you can work for. If you would like to know about graduate prospects for your chosen course more specifically, head to an open day to talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
