This four-year bachelor’s honours degree prepares you for leadership responsibilities in the evolving field of human resources management. Strategic human resources management professionals are able to leverage employee talent and integrate business objectives to successfully manage and implement organizational projects, programs and initiatives. With human resources management and business knowledge, as well as the ability to communicate with leaders across the organization, strategic human resources management professionals play a role in shaping contemporary business strategies.

You develop critical-thinking skills and knowledge required to execute human resources management activities encompassing the employee life cycle – from effective recruitment and selection to employee relations strategies. There is an emphasis on teamwork, real-world simulations and project management skills throughout the program. The program’s capstone course involves an industry-based project where you will work in collaborative teams to research, design and create strategic human resources management initiatives for an organization. You gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term.

As a strategic human resources management professional, you may find employment in the private, public or non-profit sectors across a wide range of industries, including healthcare, education, technology and manufacturing. Graduates have the opportunity to pursue human resources management certifications or graduate study.

I studied at the Pembroke campus where I found my calling! The community of professors and students is close and the curriculum balances the practical and theoretical side of things very well with in-class lectures and many workshops. I also loved that I got three field placements, which is more than other programs. Everyone is working to support your success here and send you off into a secure and in demand job where you get to care for and help develop children. Dream come true.
