It is important to note that the General Education Core does not add to, subtract from, or change any requirements for a specific major. Students need to work closely with an academic advisor to determine what relationship, if any, exists between requirements for the general education core and requirements for a specific major.
If you are pursuing a Labor Studies degree on an IU campus not listed above, contact Pat Hill for details on the general education common core coursework for your campus.
The Labor Studies concentration consists of 15 credit hours of 100/200 level courses and 12 credit hours of 200/300/400 level courses. There are no pre-requisites or co-requisite Labor Studies courses. Students can take the Labor Studies courses in any order, although, we do suggest a logical progression (100 level, 200 level, 300 level, etc.).
Additional General Education courses (3 cr.) is required
We recommend that you take Labor Studies courses to strengthen your Labor Studies education.
Please note: Within the 120 credit hours required for the Labor Studies degree, students must have a minimum of 30 credit hours at the 300 or 400 level. In addition, concentration requirements must be completed with a grade of C– or higher. All courses are 3 credit hours, unless otherwise designated.
