ENHANCING HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS IN THE WORKPLACE
Students in the Human Relations Administration (HRA) major complete course work and field placements that will prepare them for a career in human resources at both profit and not-for-profit agencies. They will develop the skills necessary to manage employee relationships, facilitate critical workplace training, enhance staff motivation and ensure compliance of important legal issues including diversity and inclusion.
Gain vital skills for profit and not-for-profit organizations
Human Resources is a growing field, and our students will possess highly marketable skills upon entering the workforce. In addition to completing a B.S. in HRA, students are encouraged to earn one HR-related minor, such as Organizational and Community Leadership or Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, allowing them to master several academic disciplines, including business, communications, human development, mentorship/counseling, and interpersonal relationships.
Students will gain valuable internship experience, receiving on-the-job training in a human resources organization. Additionally, they will complete a seminar focused on professional development and pertinent issues in the field.

What’s special about this program?
HR Admin offers a unique blend of coursework and real-world experience.
Unlike other HR programs rooted in economics and accounting, our major focuses on leadership, relationships and interpersonal counseling--teaching students to identify the needs of individuals, resolve issues, supervise staff and offer professional development training.
As part of their coursework, students complete two internships at local agencies, allowing them to apply their classroom knowledge and gain practical experience in the field.
We provide our students opportunities to grow academically, socially and professionally. Human Relations Administration majors can study abroad, conduct undergraduate research, complete internships, or become a member of our service/honors/support clubs.
