Human Resources Management
Minor in Human Resources Management
One of the fastest-growing areas in business is the recruitment, retention and development of an organization’s workforce. Leadership effectiveness is often measured by the ability to get the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats (“Good to Great” by Jim Collins). Evangel’s Human Resources Management minor provides entry-level human resource management professionals with a Christian worldview who can have significant influence in creating an effective workforce in all sizes and types of organizations.
Evangel's 20 credit hour Human Resources Management minor can be used to complete the management elective requirements to provide excellent entry-level human resource management professionals with a Christian worldview who can have significant influence in creating an effective workforce in all sizes and types of organizations, including for-profit, nonprofit and governmental organizations. The Human Resources Management minor can also be combined with a major in Psychology to prepare students to pursue a Master of Organizational Psychology program or to enter a human resource career. The minor includes the organizational design & management course from the business core along with upper-division requirements of human resource management, human behavior in organizations, compensation and benefits, workforce selection and development, a human resources internship, and three credits selected from organizational leadership, readings in leadership or directed research.
