Why Choose the Human Resource Management Minor?

A minor in Human Resource Management helps to position students in other majors to become supervisors/managers in their chosen field. It is a popular minor for students pursuing majors in health care (e.g., Health Care Systems Administration, Radiography, Sonography, Nuclear Medical Technology, and Nursing), Communications, Engineering Technology, and Psychology. Students will take courses in Human Resources, Employment Law, Compensation, and Negotiations and have a choice of electives depending on their interests.

Admission Requirements:

Any person who is admitted to a Ferris State University Bachelor's degree program is welcome to pursue this minor in addition to their major.

Graduation Requirements

You will receive the Human Resources Management Minor upon graduation with a baccalaureate degree, and after completion of the requirements for the minor with a minimum 2.0 grade point average.

No more than 50% of the credits required for this minor may be transferred from another institution.  A maximum of 1/3 of the credits, but not more than 7 credits in a minor may overlap with the student's major.
