Program Requirements

The courses offered in this program are from the Faculty of Arts and Science and may be available during the day or evening in the Summer and the Fall/Winter Sessions. Not all courses may be offered every session. Please consult the timetable for further information.

CHRM is a part-time program and the majority of students will finish the program over two academic years. The part-time restriction refers only to course load.    Some courses are available in the day-time only.   Students who have been granted transfer credits and/ or students who are able to enroll in a conflict free course schedule may be able to enrol in a fulltime course load and complete the program is less than two academic years.  Students are advised to check course prerequisites and the timetable to determine if this is possible.  Students wishing to get a head start in CHRM should complete some introductory courses during the summer session (such as IRE244 or 260).    Prerequisites are strictly enforced. No exceptions are made.

A Certificate in Human Resource Management will be awarded upon successful completion of five (5.0) full course equivalents with a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average of 1.85.

Students are not permitted to take courses at UTM or UTSC.

Students may complete a maximum of 5.0 full course equivalents from group A OR 4.0 full course equivalents from Group A and no more than one (1.0) full course equivalent from Group B.
