Advising Notes

Please Read: This major guide is a list of all possible major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, it’s designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major. 

  1. Time to graduation: Because of course sequencing and demand, students should expect to spend 5 semesters at JMU to complete the HM degree. Students may want to consider adding a minor. Minors that pair well with HM are Human Resource Development, Entrepreneurship, foreign language, Art and Communication Studies. More minors can be found here.
  2. It is important for students intending to transfer for HM to start working on the required 600 hours of related work experience before transferring to JMU. This is a pre-requisite to one of the HM junior year courses. Approved businesses and industries that will meet this requirement are hotels, motels, catering companies, restaurants, food services for college dining halls, resorts, travel companies, airlines, cruise ship lines and event management companies. Students can provide copies of pay stubs or a memo from their supervisor documenting the number of hours worked.
  3. HM students also earn a minor in General Business. Differential tuition for College of Business majors/minors: Students will be charged an additional $50 per credit for all College of Business courses (with the exception of ECON 200). Click here for more information.
