Bachelor of Arts in Human Relations
Major courses for this program are offered on campus; online options are available for general education courses.
Human Relations is a field of study for those who enjoy working with people, and have good ideas about how to make the workplace more effective and satisfying. The BA in Human Relations degree prepares students to understand and skillfully respond to various challenges of human behavior, interaction, and relationships in our evolving and increasingly global, diverse, and technologically oriented world of work. Additionally, students gain the leadership, managerial, and supervisory skills to advance within their organizations.
Drawing on the fields of psychology, sociology, business, communications, and the humanities, students examine the organizational forms, practices, and policies that can foster or hinder the development of productive relationships and organizational success. Students develop the necessary knowledge and skills to make these relations and their workplaces more effective.
Students in the program:
- Evaluate workplace problems, and construct and communicate well-researched and relevant solutions.
- Utilize key human relations, sociological, and psychological concepts to foster collaboration, motivation, and employee engagement.
- Investigate how various forms of social inequality and difference impact human relations in the workplace, and contribute to efforts to improve organizational policy and culture.
- Develop relevant strategies for conflict prevention, negotiation, and resolution in workplace settings.
