Return to Haslam College of Business Return to: Haslam College of Business

The management of human capital is critical to the success of an organization. The Human Resource Management major prepares students to assume positions as human resource generalists and specialists. The major develops a student's competencies in forecasting human resource needs as well as the recruitment, selection, training, and development of employees. Human resource managers are also involved in designing performance appraisal systems, developing compensation and benefit programs, monitoring employee health and safety, and establishing cooperative working relationships with organized labor, all of which are covered in the coursework. The human resource management curriculum also addresses analyzing current labor force trends, treating employees fairly, encouraging diversity, and understanding the foundations of employment law.

uTrack Requirements (for students entering Fall 2013 or later)

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who enter prior to Fall 2015.
