BSc in Management and Human Resources (Study Abroad) (Full Time)

Lancaster University

Bachelor Degree , Human Resource Management

Course Description

Can the interests of employees and of organisations co-exist? What is the impact of the ‘gig economy’ on employee relations? What are the drivers behind communication, change and motivation? So much can be uncovered by delving into people’s behaviours and interactions with organisations and society.

This degree focuses on understanding humans – the way they work and how their behaviour can be influenced through people management practices. We won’t teach you how to become a manager. Instead, we will explore the perspectives of both employers and employees. Join us in challenging the assumptions behind human resources and how people are managed.

You will study management theory alongside psychology, sociology and history. You will also spend a year studying overseas.

Our teaching approach blends academic material with practical insights and exercises. You will be taught by academics who are tackling the big questions of the day such as Artificial Intelligence, ethnic and cultural diversity and technology.

 In your first year, you study Management and Organisational Behaviour, selecting two more subjects. The most useful options are from Social Sciences or Management School, but the choice is yours.

You will spend your second year at one of our partner universities abroad. Here you can explore another culture while deepening your understanding of Human Resources Management. You will also choose from topics such as Managing People or Business Ethics.

The final year sees you selecting from options such as International Human Resource Management, Ethics and Sustainability, and Organisational Change.

This degree will give you a critical understanding of the complex world of work and organisations. If you are interested in how to create a happy, efficient workforce, this degree can put you on the path to a career in people management.

Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credit to your Lancaster degree.  Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.

Course Content

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme to complement your main specialism. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster please visit our Teaching and Learning section.

The following courses do not offer modules outside of the subject area due to the structured nature of the programmes: Architecture, Law, Physics, Engineering, Medicine, Sports and Exercise Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and Biomedical Science.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, and the University will make every reasonable effort to offer modules as advertised. In some cases changes may be necessary and may result in some combinations being unavailable, for example as a result of student feedback, timetabling, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes and new research.
