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 in your human resources (HR) role, from recruitment and workplace negotiations, to creating high-performance environments. You’ll graduate with a more targeted knowledge base in psychology. This allows you to take a scientific approach to the day-to-day functions of a HR professional. Your deep understanding of human behaviour will be crucial when it comes to analysing employee performance, developing strong organisational culture and selecting the right person for the job. The course has been recognised by key accreditation bodies in HR and psychology as a degree that closely reflects the needs of the industry, largely due to our practical learning opportunities, including industry placements and overseas study tours.
