The Labor Relations and Research Center (LRRC) offers a multidisciplinary graduate program that explores the study of work and labor, immigration, globalization, gender, and economic and social trends. The program also offers several undergraduate courses that complement studies in the social sciences and humanities. LRRC faculty sponsor students in the Bachelor’s Degree in Individual Concentration and the University Without Walls programs and also admit advanced undergraduates to graduate-level courses.
Labor Studies is an exciting field at the intersection of several disciplines. Using rigorous methods from disciplines such as political science, sociology, economics, and history, it analyzes issues surrounding work and explores their ramifications. Students are trained to understand and address the most important problems facing working people in the United States and in the world.
