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 justice.
