Mixing theory and practice, this programme offers you the opportunity for in-depth study of human resource management, organisations and the management of work, while at the same time working towards a professional level of membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
Covering topics such as organisational change, performance management, training and development, and employment law, this part-time programme is designed to develop high performing HRM practitioners that can develop and implement innovative and strategic HRM solutions that will drive organisational performance. The programme design aligns to the key HRM professional competency areas as designated by the CIPD.
In addition to the focus on Human Resource Management knowledge and skills, the course provides a broad-based business management education. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of human resources within a business environment both nationally and internationally.

Paul Woods B.Sc. Human Resource Management (DT332)
Having previously gained a qualification in Languages and Business Studies and worked abroad for seven years, I returned to Ireland to further my education.
From the outset of my search for a suitable course, the subjects covered on the BSc. (Hons) in HRM stood out as they offered a good mix of human resources and business subjects. The small class size allowed for more constructive discussions and enabled you to get to know your lecturers, who were always happy to make time and offer assistance in any way possible.
The diversity of students combined with differing experiences and roles, presented us with alternative methods of dealing with issues that arise from our daily dealing with people, be it as a manager or as a human resources specialist. While I enjoyed the many discussions that took place, the seminar days helped to engrain the theories learned. This was done by offering us an opportunity to put into practice the skills we were acquiring.
The four years made me realise the importance of the HR function and the necessity for everyday line managers to be aware of their responsibilities to both employer and employee alike.
The BSc. in HRM gave me the confidence to challenge myself and step outside my comfort zone. As I will shortly be moving on to a postgraduate qualification, I can look back at these four years as the perfect foundation for my continued professional development.
