Human resource management has become recognized as a critical function in the organization over the last 20 years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2009), the human resource field is projected to grow significantly in the next decade, making this occupation an attractive source of future employment opportunities. While many of the tasks associated with human resource management are centered in the human resources (HR) department, all managers have HR responsibilities.

The human resource management (HRM) minor covers a broad range of topics associated with HR management from the perspective of the HR professional, the manager, and the employee. It will also serve to familiarize students who hope to become managers or team leaders during their careers with some of the issues they will have to deal with such as staffing, motivating, and developing team members.

A five-year B.A. in Human Resource Management/Master of Human Resource Management (M.H.R.M.) dual-degree program is also available. Qualified students who successfully complete the B.A. in Human Resource Management and who are accepted into the existing Master of Human Resource Management program may transfer up to 18 credits towards the graduate degree. Students in the dual-degree program must complete 30 graduate-level credits for the M.H.R.M. degree.

Rutgers uses your FAFSA to develop a financial-aid package based on your qualifications, financial need and the funds available to the university. Your package may include any or a combination of these major financial aid sources:

  • Gift aid does not require repayment and is divided into three categories: grants (which recognize financial need) and scholarships and awards (which recognize academic merit, special talents, or other achievements).
  • Loans must be repaid (usually after graduation) and can come from private lenders as well as federal, state and university sources.
  • Work-study allows students to earn money for college expenses while gaining valuable skills - often in their intended field.
