University of Lincoln - Lincoln Business School
Online 2 years May 2017 United Kingdom Lincoln

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. [+]

BSc 2017. 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. Course Outcomes The BSc (Hons) Human Resource Management qualification is seen as the basis for further career development. 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. The benefits of the programme include: For individuals: Academic recognition for learning you have already achieved. Study at a pace and place to suit you, with the potential to work towards the degree when work and personal commitments allow and to take a break from the programme when other pressures take over. Learning that is relevant and focussed on issues faced in your current job. Direct access to specialist expertise to support work-based projects and to extend the scope of your activities. Immediate opportunities to apply theory in practice. Improved performance and the ability to respond to change For organisations: Gain insight via your employee as to how many other companies in a wide range of industries improve their performance and policies, providing you with a competitive edge. Benefit from the programme’s work-based projects, with informed advice and expertise from programme leaders. Increased employee confidence, motivation, accuracy and creative implementation of current HR theory in your workplace. Programmes will be customised to fit in with your specific organisation. How you are assessed The assessments are designed to address the learning outcomes of all individual modules, utilising a range of assessment methods including essays, portfolios, reflective logs and reports. There are, on an ongoing basis throughout the programme, opportunities for formative feedback to aid learning and prepare students for submission of assessments. The academic staff facilitating the BSc (Hons) Human Resource Management programme are committed to ensuring that students engage with the programme and are able to demonstrate and apply the benefits of enhanced learning and understanding. The key objective is that achievement of the intended learning outcomes for the programme are demonstrated through the most effective form of assessment. [-]

The BSc Degree in Economics held by our alumni is a signal for the internalization of social-scientific thinking and acquisition of technical and analytical skills that are required in post-graduate education and business life. Equipped with a strong sense of social responsibility, our alumni are capable of developing theoretical and practical solutions to complex economic and administrative problems. We are aware that many of university candidates and their families have essential questions, such as: What is Economics? Why Economics? Why Economics at METU NCC? We made a frank effort to address these crucial questions. University candidates and their families are cordially invited to examine especially these links, along with all other related components of our web-page. As members of the METU Family, “we can change the world”. You can also start to change the world by joining the “Family of METU Economists”. With our best wishes and regards, Academic Staff of the Economics Program WHY ECONOMICS AT METU NCC? Having started research and education activities in the academic year 2004-2005, the first graduating class of our Economics Program received their BSc degrees in 2008. Appreciating our students as the competent and reputable economists of the future, we educate them through METU's institutionalized system of teaching and tradition of high-quality research, complying fully with the international standards and keeping track of scientific novelties. Our Program blends contemporary economics curriculum of leading universities in the world with the well-established academic tradition of the Economics Department of the METU Ankara Campus. The scope and depth of our curriculum enable our alumni to succeed in post-graduate studies, job exams and interviews.

Cooperative Engineering 3-2 Program

The State University of New York at Geneseo
Campus Full time 5 years September 2017 USA Geneseo

Cooperative Engineering combines studies in liberal arts and sciences at one of the United States’premier public universities with professional preparation in engineering at top tier engineering schools [+]

BSc 2017. Cooperative Engineering combines studies in liberal arts and sciences at one of the United States’premier public universities with professional preparation in engineering at top tier engineering schools. Candidates enrolled in the cooperative engineering program major in either physics, chemistry or geology. Upon completion of three full years of study in one of these disciplines, you complete two additional years of study in a selected field of engineering at one of the cooperating engineering schools. Upon completion of studies at one of the schools of engineering, you receive a liberal arts and sciences degree from Geneseo and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from the cooperating institution. Advantages of the Cooperative Approach The cooperative approach provides several distinct advantages over direct entry into a school of engineering: Geneseo’s location and collaborative learning community provides students with guidance and support to help ease the transition into a rigorous university environment; You will have the opportunity to explore a number of liberal arts and science programs while maintaining the option to continue your studies in the engineering field. You may delay the decision to pursue engineering for a period of three full years. The decision to complete a four-year degree in liberal arts and sciences or to continue with engineering is made during the junior year; The cooperative engineering program emphasizes a broader range of courses and ideas than traditional engineering and combines a strong liberal education with specialized training; Since engineering technology is essentially the application of concepts and principles derived from the disciplines of physics, chemistry, and mathematics, cooperative engineering students are very well prepared for professional studies; Graduates with both a liberal arts and sciences and an engineering degree may have a decisive advantage as candidates for employment in engineering and other fields. Cooperative Institutions Geneseo has formal cooperative arrangements with Case Western Reserve University, Clarkson University, and Columbia University. These institutions provide you with a range of options for continuing your studies in the engineering field.  Additionally, our students may still do an informal 3-2 program with many other colleges.  Popular institutions include Alfred University, SUNY Binghamton, SUNY at Buffalo, Syracuse and University of Rochester. Program Options Examples of the fields of engineering from which you may choose at cooperating institutions include: Aerospace Applied Chemistry Applied Geophysics Applied Physics Biomedical Ceramic Engineering Chemical Chemical Metallurgy Civil & Environmental Computer Electrical Electrical & Computer Energy Engineering Mathematics Engineering Mechanics Engineering Science Environmental Industrial Mathematics Methods Materials Mechanical Mechanical & Industrial Metallurgical Mineral Mining Nuclear Operations Research Consult the catalogs of the cooperating institutions for specific details of the engineering phase of the program. Science at Geneseo Perhaps the most outstanding feature of science at Geneseo is the quality of our faculty; each of the 47 members of our science faculty holds the Ph.D. degree. Instruction is provided exclusively by the full-time faculty. Excellent facilities, a very favorable student/faculty ratio, and close working relationships between students and faculty are added advantages. Undergraduates often work with professors on specialized research projects. Geneseo is also among the nation’s top producers of bachelor’s degrees in physics, according to the American Institute of Physics. Among primarily undergraduate institutions, the College ranks in the top 10 nationally in the number of alumni with doctorates in STEM fields. Employment Opportunities Employment opportunities for graduates with engineering degrees vary depending upon field and geographic area, but are generally excellent. Nationally, more than half of all job offers to college graduates are in engineering. Although opportunities in some fields vary considerably from year to year, the long range projection for most fields is very encouraging. Again, it is important to remember that candidates who have two degrees often have a decisive advantage in the employment market. Each of the affiliated institutions provide counseling and placement services for engineering graduates. [-]

Our Political Science program covers the four traditional subfields of the discipline: Canadian Politics and Government, Comparative Politics, International Relations and World Politics, and Political Philosophy. Students are offered a sound foundation in the institutional and philosophical dimensions of political life and are attuned to the trends and shocks that alter the forces and issues affecting us at home and abroad. The program also offers a for-credit Model United Nations course, which sends student each year to at least one major Model UN simulation. Teams have competed at Harvard, the UN in New York, and Ottawa. Each spring, St. Thomas hosts the John Peters Humphrey Model UN for high school students, giving students in our Political Science Department a chance to become centrally involved in organizing and running the event. CRITICAL & TRANSFERABLE SKILLS Political Science students hone their reading, writing, and analytic skills. They examine arguments, identify trends, test theories, and explain developments. They learn about the links between individual concerns and public policy problems. By studying case studies in national and international governance, international relations, and comparative politics, they develop their skills of public policy analysis and prepare themselves for analytical, project management, and communication work in various agencies of the government, as well as non-governmental and international organizations. COMMON CAREERS AND GRADUATE PATHWAYS Many Political Science graduates pursue careers in law, journalism, public service, domestic and international organizations, research, communications and public relations, education, domestic and international nongovernmental organizations, business, academia, and many other areas of the public and private sectors. A degree in Political Science prepares students to understand and thrive in the social and political aspects that inevitably affect almost every field of work. RELATED AREAS OF STUDY The study of politics and government incorporate such diverse and sometimes conflicting perspectives. It is important for students of Political Science to be familiar with an array of topics that are deeply understood by taking courses in other subject areas such as History, Philosophy, Great Books, Economics, English, and Sociology. Consideration of historical, philosophical, economic, and social aspects of government is essential to understanding today’s political institutions and processes.
