Human resource management

BSc Management and Human Resources explores critically the key management ideas and practices that shape the modern workplace. You will explore the societal dimensions and impact of work policy and management practices, and how the individual is placed in relation to the firm. This is a rigorous programme of study accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), but it is also flexible with a large number of optional second and third-year modules from which to choose, building a degree that makes the most of your strengths and interests.

Studying Management and Human Resources at Lancaster helps you understand many current and critical questions about the changing nature of organisations, work and people management practices. You will be taught by academics who are tackling the big questions of the day, such as employment relations, wellbeing and managing diversity, business ethics, sustainability, artificial intelligence, and the implications of technology in society. Management and Human Resources is crucial to an organisation’s success, and such knowledge provides a solid basis for skilled professionals to design and implement meaningful and appropriate management interventions.

This degree focuses on understanding people – the way we work and how our behaviour can be influenced through management practices – primarily through social and psychological perspectives (rather than mathematical and statistical understandings).

Our teaching approach blends academic material with practical insight and exercises. We place a strong emphasis on collaborative working that supports your personal development as well as your academic skills.

In your first year, you study Management and Organisational Behaviour, selecting two more subjects from either Social Sciences or the Management School. In your second year, you study Human Resources Management and deepen your understanding by choosing from topics such as Organisational Psychology or Business Ethics. In your third year, you will study at a partner university abroad, studying modules that are local specialities. There are many advantages to studying abroad, including personal and educational development, experiencing a new culture, and enhanced employability. If you are considering further study, graduate programmes welcome study abroad candidates. The final year in Lancaster sees you selecting from options such as Work and Employment Relations and Organising in a Digital Age.

The programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the professional body for HR and people development, allowing you to become a student member and enjoy the benefits and resources CIPD provides. On graduation you can become an Associate Member of CIPD, enhancing your employability in the HR field.

Throughout your studies, you will have support from our careers team, which includes a dedicated departmental careers coach working with you from day one to help with internships, placements and graduate employment. We will supply training in CV writing, interview assessment centres, and telephone interviews, helping you with your future career ambitions. Students following the new CIPD accredited route also benefit from three new ‘professional development modules’ that will enhance your HR skills.

BSc Management and Human Resources is also offered as a three-year degree, and a four-year degree with a year in industry. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster. Lancaster University cannot accept responsibility for any financial aspects of the year abroad.

This degree gives you a critical understanding of the complex world of work and organisations. It can put you on the path to a career in human resource management or management more broadly, with graduates having gone on to work as business consultants and for NGOs.

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.
