Notes on the human resources management requirements:

  • At least half of the courses for the human resources management major—including the business school core, the globalization course, and human resources management required courses—must be taken at St. John Fisher College.
  • Students should pay careful attention to course prerequisites; not doing so could delay progress through the program.
  • Human resources management majors may not declare a minor in either management or marketing.

For students majoring in human resources management, all business core, globalization, and human resources management courses are included in the determination of the grade point average in the major. Although majors need to achieve a 2.00 grade point average in these courses, it is not necessary to earn a grade of “C” or above in every course.
