With human resources becoming an increasingly strategic function of many organizations, human resource professionals need the skills required to work effectively in a continually changing environment. The goal of the B.S. in Human Resource Management program is to provide individuals with the human resource and management skills required to work effectively at a professional level in a continually changing human resource environment. The programs focus is on the development of individual skill sets at the operational level to prepare students for administrative, specialist, and generalist human resource functions and positions with an emphasis on becoming a valued partner within the organization.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that Saint Mary's B.S. in Human Resource Management program fully aligns with SHRMs Human Resources Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.
