About Human Resource Management
The Human Resource Management (HRM) major is a multidisciplinary major that draws heavily from business strategy, psychology, economics, and sociology.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the human resource field is projected to grow significantly in the next decade, opening up employment opportunities to those with training in the field. Although many of these opportunities will be in human resource departments, other managerial positions often have significant human resource responsibilities as well—making an education in human resources a truly valuable skill for you to have across many departments and industries. Past Rutgers HRM graduates are currently working in leadership positions in some of the largest companies around the world.
In choosing the HRM major you will gain valuable business knowledge without having to pursue a complete business degree. Particularly if you are majoring in a social science such as psychology, economics, communications—an HRM major can provide you with a business perspective that will prepare you for a successful corporate, consulting, or government career.
