Masters in Professional Studies (MPS) in Labor and Global Workers’ Rights Program
The MPS in Labor and Global Workers’ Rights will be a 30-credit program of study for professionals working on global labor and worker rights issues, including: 1. The right to organize labor unions, bargain and strike; 2. The right to equal treatment at work for women, racial and ethnic minorities, and migrant workers; 3. The right to safe and healthy workplaces. Students will also explore labor in the global economy, international financial institutions and the International Labour Organization system. During the summer months, students will participate in an internship with a US trade union or worker-oriented organization and complete a capstone project. Assistantships and scholarships are available and will be awarded based on need and the quality of the application. Applicants are strongly encouraged to acquire some complementary support from their trade union, labor federation, or related organization.
