Labor Studies and Employment Relations

The department offers two undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Arts in Labor Studies and Employment Relations joint degree from the School of Management and Labor Relations and the School of Arts and Sciences and a Bachelor of Science in Labor and Employment Relations granted by the School of Management and Labor Relations. The latter features flexible scheduling opportunities and a student-centered program especially suitable for part-time students or working adults. Both offer great choices for students interested in how work is managed, the problems of working people, and what workers have done as individuals and groups to address these problems. Both types of majors are eligible to apply for a five-year bachelor/master's of labor and employment relations degree program.

The undergraduate labor studies and employment relations program's introductory courses offer anyone interested in the world of work (or likely to have a job) the opportunity to develop a realistic view of the dominant institutions, practices, and values of the workforce and to think about how work can be improved.

Intermediate courses enable students to acquire a range of specific competencies useful to employment, labor relations, and human resource specialists. They also allow students to participate in a series of cultural and disciplinary dialogues providing alternative perspectives on work and the wider society.

Advanced courses provide students majoring in labor studies and employment relations with an opportunity to consolidate what they have learned about the nature of work through more in-depth study of a particular topic or topics through either independent work or the senior seminar.
