The Labor Studies degree has helped me advance within the Labor Movement. This degree can help those wanting a career in Labor Representation or those seeking to improve their work environment. Having all courses available online allowed for a flexible schedule while exposing me to a diverse group of great professors and students from every IU campus. The faculty were always eager to assist me in my educational planning, and since there are also summer courses available, I was able to complete a B.S. degree in 3 years while working full time. The faculty always encouraged lively and civil debate so every idea and voice could be expressed. I can truly say that not only did I receive a great education, but I am also a better person because of the wonderful people within the Department of Labor Studies.

The Labor Studies program has given me a solid scholastic foundation to supplement my work experience in Labor Relations Management. The curriculum allows insight to everyday real life work experiences. Additionally, the program has allowed me to develop in my role by giving me a balanced outlook on labor-management relationships. I highly recommend this program.
