Academic Programs

Undergraduate Major and Minor

The Carlson School's undergraduate program offers an intensive course of study that leads to the Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) degree. Students may work toward a major or a minor in Human Resources and Industrial Relations. The HRIR undergraduate curriculum provides a deep, broad business education, and builds upon that foundation with courses in the dynamic field of human resources and industrial relations.

Master of Arts in Human Resource and Industrial Relations Degree

The Master of Arts in HRIR program is recognized as one of the top programs of its kind in the country. With both a day and evening track, the program gives students from diverse backgrounds a chance to study with a world-class faculty committed to providing a dynamic learning experience.

PhD Program

The PhD program in Human Resources and Industrial Relations is being integrated into the Carlson School's PhD program with the addition of a Work and Organizations track that joins the other traditional business tracks. While the name of the degree is changing, the degree program remains the same.

The Department of Work and Organizations will continue to offer the same rigorous curriculum, rich opportunities for research collaboration with world-renowned faculty, and the ability to develop a teaching portfolio in support of rewarding academic careers in organizational behavior, human resource management, organizational economics, labor relations, and related areas.

For Fall 2014 admission, interested students should apply directly to the PhD program in Business Administration; the applications will be reviewed by faculty from the Department of Work and Organizations. For more information, please browse the PhD program in Business Administration website, including the material on the Work and Organizations track.
