Master's Program Overview
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.
