Bachelor of Human Resource Management (Psychology)
The Bachelor of Human Resource Management (Psychology) empowers you to see human resources from a different angle. By exploring the human mind in a business context, you’ll have a significant advantage when performing key functions of the role, from recruitment and workplace negotiations to creating high-performance environments.
If you’re interested in HR, why not graduate with complementary skills in psychology that make you stand out from the pack?
At the core of human resources is understanding the person in front of you. What motivates them? What holds them back? What role suits their strengths? The Bachelor of Human Resource Management (Psychology) prepares you for these questions and more. You’ll graduate with a keen sense of the underlying factors behind common workplace challenges. And through practical learning underpinned by the latest research, you’ll be able to provide evidence-based solutions to these very challenges.
By applying a psychology lens to human resource management, you’ll have a decided advantage in core competencies relating to:
- employee relations
- change and performance management
- organizational culture
- research methods.
