Human Relations

Human Relations

We are a multi-disciplinary field of study and professional practice combining theoretical perspectives from the social sciences and humanities, organizational studies, the world of work and service, and from multicultural studies.   The BA and the MHR degrees prepare students to meet the challenge of working in an increasingly diverse and global workplace.
