UMass Amherst offers a unique multi-disciplinary program that combines coursework and an internship toward an M.S. degree in Labor Studies. Coursework provides the skills necessary to work in the labor movement - expertise in organizing, collective bargaining, strategic corporate research, and union leadership - and you will have an opportunity to examine the larger theoretical and strategic issues confronting workers and their unions in the new millennium.
A degree from the Labor Center guarantees a wide range of job opportunities within the labor movement and workers' rights organizations. Our graduates have been in high demand among unions and organizations fighting for social change and economic justice.
