5 Year BS in Spanish/MS in HRER IUG Program

Integrated B.S. in Spanish and M.S. in Human Resources and Employment Relations (SPHRER)

The integrated Spanish B.S. and HRER M.S. is a five-year program designed for highly qualified and motivated students seeking employment within a culturally diverse workplace. Students will develop basic skills in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing Spanish. Students will gain familiarity with Hispanic cultures through literature and the University’s international education program, if they choose to have that experience. Students also will learn about (1) the roles that employers, employees, employee organizations, and public policy makers play in the employment relationship, (2) the complex personal and organizational issues inherent in the employment relationship, and (3) how to systematically analyze those complex issues and evaluate research relevant to those analyses.

For the Integrated Spanish B.S. and Human Resources and Employment Relations M.S. degrees, a minimum of 154 credits is required. Twelve graduate level credits can apply to both undergraduate and graduate degrees; six of these must be at the 500 level. Students can complete the B.S. in Spanish and not advance to the M.S. HRER degree if they desire.
