Course content

The MSc Human Resource Management and the Future of Work is an intensive master’s-level specialist programme for graduates who have a prior qualification in social sciences and wish to develop their knowledge and skills in the practice, theory and policy of the world of work.

The future of work has become one of the defining debates of our generation. Whilst the greening of our economies will create millions of jobs, many traditional forms of work will also disappear. The digital economy fosters greater connectivity and access to technologies, but also has the potential to disrupt labour markets. The future of work creates many challenges, but countless opportunities exist to improve the quality of working lives and reverse the damages inflicted by global inequality and the climate crisis.

This 12-month full-time programme will appeal to students who want to engage, respond to and be part of the global challenges related to Human Resource Management and the Future of Work. We aim to develop analytical and confident critical thinkers through research-led teaching. You will gain insight into the nature of Human Resource Management and the complexity of organisations from a variety of disciplines and will be armed with the relevant knowledge to apply theory to practice.

You will be part of a dynamic and diverse body of staff and students in Bristol and will be taught by experienced academics. Staff in the School of Management are engaged in conducting pioneering research that is shaping policy and practice in the UK, Europe and globally.
