Recommendations from the Director

Year one

Consider taking OBHR 3330 Introduction to Human Resource Management during the first year to determine if HR is right for you and then enable you to take the core courses next.

Years two and three

Consider completing the majority of the HRM core courses your sophomore and junior years. This will help ensure that you are well grounded in the basics of HRM before you begin your internship.

Year four

Take the HRM Capstone course and HRM electives your senior year. As the Capstone course ties all of the components of HRM together, it is important that these courses have previously been completed. Similarly, for those wishing to take the SHRM CP exam, taking the preparation course the semester before completing the exam will be the best possible preparation for the exam. Other electives will also be available (e.g., Labor Relations, HR Analytics).
