Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management Papers at Tauranga (2020)

Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management (IR&HRM) is an interdisciplinary subject designed to prepare students for careers in the broad, ever-changing field of employment relations, human resource management, workplace change, and education and training. The subject also prepares students well for graduate studies. This is achieved by bringing together relevant papers from Education Studies, Human Resource Management, Labour Studies and Psychology.

IR&HRM is available as a first major for the Bachelor of Social Sciences (BSocSc). IR&HRM may also be taken as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to approval of the Division in which the student is enrolled.
