What Will You Study

Our Management and Human Resources degrees offer you a wide-ranging programme where you will study management theory alongside psychology, sociology and history. Our teaching approach blends academic material with practical insights and exercises, enabling a critical understanding of the complex world of work and organisations.

On this degree you will focus on understanding people – the way they work and how their behaviour can be influenced through people management practices.

You start your degree studying the core module Management and Organisational Behaviour and take two other Part One courses. We recommend choosing Management School or Social Sciences courses, but the choice is yours.

In your second year, you’ll deepen your understanding with modules including Managing People, Business Ethics and Human Resource Management. The latter module is compulsory for this course.

In your third year you will undertake an industrial placement before returning to Lancaster for your final year where you can choose from a range of modules such as International HRM, HRM: Theory and Practice, Ethics and Sustainability and Organisational Change. The Human Resource Management courses are compulsory for students on this course.
