Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Labour Studies

Labour studies examine the social, economic, and political realities of work. 

Students explore the past, present, and future of the labor movement and the effects of globalization on their daily lives. Social justice and fundamental rights, the way work is organized, the dynamics of power in the workplace, workplace health and safety, and the political economy of labor are examined critically. 

The theory is grounded in practice, as we examine the forces that shape working people’s lives and our responses to them.

The Faculty of Arts at Manitoba university offers three-year and four-year undergraduate degree options in labor studies.

The Faculty of Arts Co-operative Education Program is an excellent way for students to enhance their classroom learning with on-the-job experience.
