    COURSE INFORMATION

    Pathways:
    Human Resource Management and Development
    Human Resource Development and Learning
    MA in Human Resource Management and Development

    Successful students on either pathway should gain graduate or Chartered Membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

    Students on the programme will engage with principles and theories of Human Resource Management and Development. This includes frameworks for reviewing, reflecting, analysing and critiquing existing individual and organisational practices as well as providing knowledge and skills, enabling enhanced and more appropriate practices to be developed. Developing students as managers to maximise the performance of the organisations, whilst recognising people as the most important organisational resource, underpins the philosophy.

    Students will need to complete 10 taught modules (amounting to 120 postgraduate credits) and a business-related Masters Dissertation (worth 60 postgraduate credits) within the two years of study.

    Students who do not wish to study up to Masters level may opt for a Postgraduate Diploma in their second year by completing a business-focused Management Report, and continue their studies at a later date to complete the Masters award.
