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.
