Minor in Human Resources Management

Any Indiana University students enrolled in a baccalaureate program may pursue the minor in Human Resources Management. Students who successfully complete the requirements will have the minor conferred with their degree.

Students who are pursing the BSPA Management major should consult with their academic advisor to ensure they are following the policy on double counting courses.

Students must declare their intentions to receive a minor by completing an application, which is available in SPEA Student Services, BS 3025 or online. A minimum GPA of 2.3 is required in courses taken specifically for the minor. At least 9 of the 15 credit hours must be taken on the IUPUI campus. During their final term of enrollment, students must also apply to have the minor conferred with their degree by completing the SPEA Graduation Application.

SPEA Students earning a SPEA minor may double count two minor courses.
