Labor Studies

The Labor Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary program that focuses upon work as a practice that shapes and is shaped by other social institutions. Labor is an economic phenomenon, and labor organizations play a role in the political process and in the management of many workplaces. Paid and unpaid labor is a key feature of family life, and segregated labor markets are central to systems of ethnic and gender inequality. Students should complete the minor as more effective participants in our workplaces and in civic affairs, and will be more appreciative of the centrality of work in our lives, families and relationships. More information can be found on our down load PDF brochure.

To earn the minor, students must complete the courses outlined in the degree table.
