Organizations increasingly are hiring well-trained HR professionals to recruit, develop, manage, and retain their most valuable business asset - their human talent. The Fox Human Resource Management (HRM) major prepares students for careers in human resource (HR) management and recognizes the necessity of creating synergies between the human and business side to enhance an organization's productivity, reputation, and sustainable profits. The Fox HRM major prepares graduates to be leaders and specialists in the areas of 1) talent recruitment and retention, 2) training and development, 3) compensation and benefits, 4) performance management, 5) labor relations and 6) compliance with local, state and federal employment laws and policies.

Typical first jobs for Human Resource Management majors include HR generalist, corporate recruiter, employee relations specialist, compensation analyst, corporate trainer, and management trainee. Typical jobs held five-ten years out include HR director, staffing manager, compensation manager, training manager, and employee relations director.

Professional Achievement Program

Human Resource Management majors are required to participate in the professional points program. This includes active involvement in Temple's student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (TUSHRM). The benefits of joining TUSHRM include guest speakers, networking events, internships, co-ops, annual HRM awards banquet, and other career development activities. There are two student SHRM chapters, one at Main Campus and the other at Ambler. The Main Campus chapter office is located in Alter Hall 333C. For more information, contact Andrea Brooks-Lopez at 215-204-4226, ablopez@temple.edu or the SHRM office at 215-204-1626. For Ambler, contact Ken Riemer at riemertr@aol.com or the SHRM Main office.

In addition to SHRM, Fox HRM also invites all majors to join our student chapters of Net Impact and Student Professional Sales Organizations (PSO). For information on Net Impact, contact faculty advisor Lynne Andersson at 215-204-5088, landerss@temple.edu.

Motivated students can accelerate their BBA program to finish in 3 years. Please contact the department for a suggested sequence.

Minors & Certificates

Organizational Leadership Minor

Open to Fox School of Business students (except Business Management majors) and students in the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management.

The four courses comprising the Organizational Leadership Minor enhance skills necessary for organizational leadership and advancement, including (1) organizational communication and influence, (2) conflict management and negotiation, (3) team building and performance management, and (4) critical thinking and problem-solving. For years corporate executives and numerous studies acknowledge business school graduates need skills beyond their technical competence as they step into leadership roles. Organizational Leadership Minor graduates are better able to think and act in ways that reflect sophisticated competencies (from interpersonal to technical) that benefit the interests of multiple organizational stakeholders.  

Requirements for this minor must be completed prior to graduation. Courses cannot be used to meet minor requirements if already used to meet the requirements for a major or a different minor or certificate.

Legal Studies Minor for Human Resource Managers

Human Resource Management majors only.

The legal aspects of managing people at all levels of business and nonprofit organizations come into play in a wide variety of human resources policies and decisions as well as the ramifications of decisions about the business itself. Compliance with local, state and federal laws and regulations also creates the need for HR practitioners to consider the legal ramifications of hiring, training, coaching, disciplining and terminating individual employees. Larger organizational issues such as layoffs, restructuring, outsourcing, benefits and retirement programs and decisions must also be made in compliance with the law.

Requirements for this minor must be completed prior to graduation. Courses cannot be used to meet minor requirements if already used to meet the requirements for a major or a different minor.

Human Resource Minor for Legal Studies

Legal Studies majors only.

Law permeates most aspects of our business lives and few decisions lack legal repercussions. In a business setting, the law regulates such things as who businesses can hire and fire, the liability for people injured on business premises and labor/management relations. On the other hand, organizations are hiring non-lawyer professionals to manage the most important asset of the business, its human talent. Those employees are usually trained in human resource management. In practice, lawyers and human resource managers work hand-in-hand to deal with employee problems and statutory regulations dealing with compliance issues. A major in law with a minor in human resource management is a natural fit. Students will learn the legal repercussions of a business decision while also being exposed to the management and human side of that decision with practical exposure to those issues.

Requirements for this minor must be completed prior to graduation. Courses cannot be used to meet minor requirements if already used to meet the requirements for a major or a different minor.

RMI & HRM Focus

The Department of Risk, Insurance and Healthcare Management offers Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) courses that complement the Department of Human Resource Management's (HRM) courses for students interested in a career in employee benefits and/or human resource management. These courses allow students to broaden their career options by taking advantage of the cross-training offered by these departments.

  • HRM major with a RMI focus: Students take RMI 3501 and RMI 3503
  • RMI major with a HRM focus: Students take HRM 2501 and HRM 3511
  • Dual HRM/RMI major. Students fulfill all requirements for both majors.

HRM 0838. Identity & Crisis. 3 Credit Hours.

As we go through life there will be natural changes that we must deal with. For college students this involves for many being on their own for the first time, picking a major, trying to figure out a work career, dealing with a roommate and other known challenges. There will also be unplanned changes or crises that each of us will face at different times over our lives, such as the sickness/death of loved ones, broken relationships, work problems, as well as our own mortality. One goal is to face each crisis in as healthy a way as possible, without physically or emotionally hurting others or ourselves. The recent Northern Illinois and Virginia Tech University tragedies are an extreme example of how someone can lash out violently. We also attack ourselves, if not physically then mentally. Often a crisis forces conflict and then leads to self-reflection, e.g., did I contribute to this crisis through how I handled conflict? The more prepared we are to deal with a crisis and conflict , the better we can come through it, helping ourselves and perhaps affected others too. Part of this preparation can involve examining our belief systems, including religious/spiritual, but also cognitive. How can we each live in the present & accept responsibility for our lives, yet not over worry about the future or have guilt/non-forgiveness about the past? NOTE: This course fulfills the Human Behavior (GB) requirement for students under GenEd and Individual & Society (IN) for students under Core.

HRM 3903. Honors - Management, Theory & Practice: From the Locker Room to the Board Room. 3 Credit Hours.

Whether a pick-up game at the local rec. center or a nationally-televised Final Four dream match-up, the game of basketball provides an ideal context for examining group dynamics, ethics, and motivation in organizations. For example, in basketball, the number one draft pick is only as dominant as the teammates (s)he electrifies. Think Michael Jordan and the notorious Chicago Bulls of the 1990s. Likewise, in a corporation, the CEO is only as effective as the top management team (s)he hand-selects and mentors to success. Ball hogs, showboaters, and cheap foulers can disrupt a basketball team's rhythm in much the same way that crooks, arbitrageurs, and balance sheet cheats can impact the bottom line. In this course students will explore - directly and metaphorically - some of the tenets of basketball as they relate to the theory and practice of management in organizations.

Leadership is a hot topic in social sciences, management, and popular culture. Ask ten people "what makes a good leader?" and you might get ten different answers. Our subject is to explore leadership as a discipline, or as scholars. More specifically, as current Honors students, you represent our future leadership. To effectively lead, having a basic understanding of the core tenets and theoretical foundations is important, but insight into your strengths and capabilities as a potential leader is essential. Thus, this course will provide you with foundational knowledge on core principles of leadership. More importantly, this course will focus on reflection, assessment, and development on the core skill sets required of effective leaders. Finally, you will be challenged to leverage your unique strengths in a team setting to enact and inspire change within your community.
