The Labour Studies Program
What is the future of work? Are jobs becoming more insecure? How will technology transform employment? These are the kinds of questions that students in the Labour Studies Program tackle as they learn about our economic system and the role of workers within it.
Labour Studies is committed to the study and understanding of labour, working people, and their organizations from a comprehensive social, cultural, historical, political, and economic perspective. We are an interdisciplinary program that brings together researchers and instructors with diverse backgrounds to explore the forces shaping work and employment today.
