Labor Studies, BA
Labor Studies is an interdisciplinary program that examines work, the workplace, workers, and their organizations. Drawing on the fields of economics, history, political science, sociology, and other disciplines, courses in Labor Studies deal with such questions as:
- What roles do unions play in affecting the well-being of workers and of society more generally? How and why have those roles changed over the course of economic development in the United States and elsewhere?
- How do changes in the global economy affect work and workers?
- In the history of the United States and other countries, how have workers’ rights changed over time? How have broad political and economic developments affected those rights?
- What opportunities and challenges do workers face as racial, gender, and ethnic diversity changes in the labor force?
- What are effective methods of worker organizing and of collective bargaining by unions? How are organizing and the practices of unions affected by changes in the larger society?
