Human Resources

Many organisations say, “our people are our greatest asset”. Human Resources helps take this statement from aspiration to reality.

This major focuses on all aspects of people management. It will help you develop an understanding of motivation at work, how HR functions identify talent to match the needs of the business, and how organisations ensure that employees gain competence required for their roles.

You'll study topics including employment relations and workplace conflict, selection and recruitment, organisational change, performance management and leadership.

You’ll also develop skills in communication and contract negotiation.

This major will prepare you for a career as an HR manager or consultant in a huge range of industries, designing interventions to support productivity, change or growth, leading (global) teams, and partnering with senior executives to provide advice to boards.
