Why study Human Resources?
The major in human resources (HR) focuses on all aspects of people management. Courses cover managing people; employment relations (which provides students with a broad understanding of the nature of Australian and international industrial relations); developing teams; selection and recruitment; organisational change; interpersonal communication; conflict resolution; training and development; managing staff in the multinational enterprise; negotiating employment agreements; and leadership.
Graduates work as professional HR managers in the public and private sectors; in professional practices such as law firms; trade unions; employer associations; state and federal government departments; HR management consultancies; industrial relations; negotiation and advocacy; and occupational health and safety. A major in human resources is advantageous for all employees who work as line managers in all industries.
