BS Three-Year Degree Plan: Human Resources Management Track

The three-year degree plan was created to demonstrate that it is possible for you to graduate in six regular and three summer semesters. However, a three-year degree plan is not best suited for every student. It assumes:

  • No remedial course work is required.
  • The student does not fail any classes.
  • The student does not change either the major or minor.
  • The student is willing to take classes each summer.

Also, a three-year degree plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring with you upon admission to the University. Please remember that course availability and prerequisites are subject to change, so consult with your advisor when scheduling your classes.

Sample schedule

This sample schedule serves as a guide for your course planning. Check our Course Rotations for future course offerings and consult with your advisor to develop the best degree plan for you.
