B.S. in Human Resource Management (HRM)
The Human Resource Management program is an accelerated degree completion program, adhering to a liberal arts core curriculum, yet flexible enough to provide adult students with the academic foundation to meet the challenges of business or organization management.
The program provides students with an understanding of business and organizational structure and functioning, and increase effectiveness in communication and interpersonal relationships.
Adults enrolled in the program are required to take the following three courses, worth a total of nine (9) hours: Management and the Family, Biblical Perspectives and Business Ethics and Values. These courses, by emphasizing Biblical principles and studying Biblical passages, are to provide a sense of professional ethics in the face of social and organizational pressure, to work constructively with others, and to appreciate Christian family life.
Students graduating successfully from the HRM program are eligible to apply for admission to graduate programs in the College of Business of Faulkner University.
Although the HRM program provides the student with a bachelor's degree and 48 semester hours of upper-division credit, please note that admission requirements for graduate schools vary extensively. The student contemplating transfer or graduate work at another institution bears the sole responsibility for ensuring that work done at Faulkner will satisfy the program requirements at a different university.
Students must pass the courses in the HRM program, maintain a 2.0 grade point average on all work attempted, and pass a Comprehensive Examination in order to receive the Bachelor of Science degree.
Transcripts from all institutions attended are considered in calculation for honors. The final GPA, which will be considered for honors at graduation, will include all Registrar approved credit from all accredited schools attended (technical and academic) in addition to credit awarded by Faulkner University. Students with an Overall GPA of 3.75 or higher will graduate with honors.
All requirements of the HRM degree must be completed within four (4) years of the initial enrollment to the program. Students who withdraw from the program, prior to re-entry re-enrollment must satisfy the requirements based on the current curriculum/catalog including completion/satisfaction of any core requirement deficiencies.
