Program Overview

Human Resource (HR) professionals play a vital role in organizations by recruiting, managing, and retaining talented employees. HR professionals support business operations by contributing to workforce training, leadership development, staffing design, compensation and benefits administration, labor relations management, risk management, and health and safety program administration.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recommends majoring in HR in order to be well-prepared specifically for this career. In keeping with SHRM’s recommendations, Immaculata offers a balanced curriculum of liberal arts and a well-rounded business education, including economics, general business, business and labor law, accounting, marketing, management and statistics.

In addition, Immaculata’s core values of service and integrity will help you become a service-oriented, ethical professional who is well equipped to support your organization.

The program is designed to produce graduates who are proficient in:

  • Assessing the market positioning of firms
  • Evaluating organizational behavior
    (structure, management, leadership, culture, etc.)
  • Reflecting on business outcomes
  • Exercising effective interpersonal, communication, and analytical skills
  • Using technology effectively to enhance productivity

Career Potential

The B.S. in Human Resource Management prepares our graduates for many areas of human resource responsibilities. HR professionals are employed by businesses and increasingly by third party administrators to which human resource functions are outsourced.

You may choose to develop a general knowledge of human resources, or you may specialize in a specific area, such as health and welfare, recruitment and selection, or internal employee relations.



You will complete an internship and associated three-credit practicum course through which you will gain real-world work experiences in the field of human resource management. The practicum provides an in-depth analysis, helping you connect your academic preparation with business experience to prepare you for your career.
