The BSc (Hons) Human Resource Management programme is a work-based distance learning programme that allows you to apply your existing HR management experience to the learning environment, providing you with a recognised HR qualification to boost your career opportunities within the Human Resource Management profession. [+]

The BSc (Hons) Human Resource Management programme is a work-based distance learning programme that allows you to apply your existing HR management experience to the learning environment, providing you with a recognised HR qualification to boost your career opportunities within the Human Resource Management profession. Open to all qualified candidates, the programme comprises the following key modules: Study Skills for Distance Learning, Integrating Professional Human Resource Experience, Managing Change in a Human Resource Environment, Developing Human Resource Professional Practice, Human Resource Management within the Organisational Context, concluding with a Dissertation. Lincoln’s BSc (Hons) Human Resource Management programme is a 'top-up' degree programme. You can receive accreditation towards the first two years of the programme through your existing academic qualifications and/or relevant professional experience. This distance learning programme can take between 18 months and 2 years to complete, depending on your individual circumstances and work commitments. What you will study Your final year study will include six modules designed to develop and enhance your appreciation and understanding of a range of key HRM concepts from an academic as well as a professional perspective. Individual module content is outlined below. Study Skills for Distance Learners At degree level, learning moves beyond simply memorizing facts to the confines of academic argument, where personal opinions and evidence are supported with academic references and citations. This module will enable you to acquire and develop a range of skills including transferable, personal, interpersonal, academic and subject specific, that will allow you to succeed in your studies. You will acquire the essential knowledge, tools and ability required to successfully complete your Degree, whilst also making the most of the freedoms and disciplines involved in HE and formal academic study. Subject specific skills are identified through reference to the relevant sector frameworks which are applied to the generic skill outcomes for final year undergraduate level. You will be given the opportunity to use reflective practice as a developmental tool. You will also be expected to demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of the rigours and expectations of academic writing and critical analysis appropriate to final year undergraduate study. Integrating Professional Business Experience Reflection as a learning technique for enhancing educational development is an important tool in a student’s professional development. Reflective practice involves learning and evolving academic understanding through examining consequences of real-life experiences. A successful Human Resource manager must open their professional practice to the scrutiny of others, becoming a more effective manager as a result. At an organisational level, reflection is the basis for maintaining the appropriate alignment of an organisation and forms the basis for strategic planning and organisational change. This module will provide you with a basic framework within which to reflect on your experiences in an HR context during previous formal managerial training and within your past/present working environments. You will be encouraged to develop your own abilities to practice reflection in the practical arena by assessing your own philosophies against academic theories and models, challenging, perfecting and increasing your own individual management skills. You’ll facilitate this through the creation of a personal learning log, individual reading and study, and face-to-face or online dialogue with your tutor. Managing Change in a Human Resource Environment This module will enable you to develop your workplace skills in the management of change through an investigation into your own or relevant organisation in relation to change management from a number of theoretical perspectives. You will begin by considering your organisation’s business and market position, its structure and how it operates, to develop an understanding of the context within which change happens. You will then consider how organisational structure and culture may enable or inhibit the process before critically investigating and evaluating change management theoretical models and exploring the impact of change upon people and the skills needed by effective change agents and organisations. Finally, you will use your learning to inform a study of change management in your organisation with particular reference to the HR function’s contribution to effective change management, and you will make recommendations about change strategies for the future. Developing Human Resource Professional Practice This module will provide a distinctive opportunity for you to develop and demonstrate a sound understanding of the knowledge, skills and behaviours required by Human Resource (HR) professionals, whether in a generalist or specialist role, and as described in the CIPD HR Profession Map (HRPM). As well as developing critical intellectual capabilities, the module is designed to target the key areas of human resource practice and procedure in which the demonstration of core skills is vital. It will support the CIPD concept of the ‘Thinking Performer’ - a practitioner who is knowledgeable and competent, forward thinking, and adds value through continuous challenge and self imposed improvement goals, and who seeks to consciously to develop these reflexive skills. By applying your acquired learning from research and exploration of academic and professional texts to your professional knowledge and experience, the module will enable you to explore the competencies required by the HR professional, while also considering the role of HR in demonstrating and promoting ethical behaviour in an organisational context. Human Resource Management within the Organisational Context Human Resource (HR) professionals need to understand key developments in the business and external contexts within which HR operates. This module will allow you to identify and review the business and external contextual factors affecting organisations and to assess the impacts of these factors on the HR function in your organisation. The module also examines HR’s role in strategy formulation and implementation and in ensuring that the appropriate mechanisms are in place to promote and support the concept of ‘high performance working practices’. The module is designed to encourage you to adopt a critical perspective of these contexts and to provide workable organisational and HR solutions to address them. Dissertation This module provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their capacity to work independently on a major project and to utilise and build on skills and subject expertise developed in other modules of their degree programme. You will work with your tutor to research, develop and present their study for assessment following the agreed formats prescribed by the Lincoln Business School and the University. You will be working closely with your tutor to develop your chosen topic, and to research and present your study for assessment, following the University’s prescribed formats.

Increasingly, employers are looking to recruit graduates who can demonstrate they have the necessary skills and abilities to succeed in the workplace, and this degree has been developed to ensure you have that edge in your current role or when applying for HR management opportunities.
