The School of Human Resource Management (SHRM) at York University is Canada's leader in HRM education.

SHRM houses the single largest group of scholars of any Canadian university dedicated to the study of work, and all that it entails. Our cutting-edge research, undertaken within the range of methodological, ontological, and epistemological perspectives, addresses real-world problems and significant intellectual debates.

Expertise of our faculty members ranges all areas of HRM specialization, including but not limited to: career management, compensation, critical management studies, labour and employment law, gender and diversity, global HRM, industrial relations, recruitment and selection, labour economics and statistics, strategic HRM, training and development, and work-nonwork issues.

NEW – Minor in Human Resource Management!

The School of Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Canada’s leader in HRM education – has launched a new minor program in Human Resource Management.

SHRM is a national leader in the development of courses and programs in HRM-related subject areas. Our courses are unique, varied and relevant to students who are interested in pursuing careers in business, management, HRM, or industrial relations, or considering further studies in business, psychology, industrial relations, law or other related areas.

Many management positions require knowledge or expertise in subject areas falling within SHRM’s fields of expertise. A minor in HRM will permit York students from other units to have exposure to these key areas and acquire important fundamental knowledge of the field. It will make students more marketable to employers. For students interested in a career in HRM-related areas, completing the minor will satisfy the requirements for the leading professional designation in HRM, the Certified Human Resource Professional (CHRP).

The minor may be combined with any approved program that offers a major/minor option in the Faculties of Environmental Studies, Health, Liberal Arts and Professional Studies, Science, the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design, or the Lassonde School of Engineering. To join the HRM minor, students must have completed at least 30 credits and have honours standing.
