Labor Studies

List of Pathway Programs All Academic Programs


Program Overview

​The Labor Center, located in MA-005, offers Labor Studies classes leading to an Associate in Arts Degree or Certificate of Achievement in Labor Studies. Classes and programs are held both on campus and off site at union halls and community organizations. Students can register online, on site in class or at the Labor Center Office. 

The Labor Center maintains strong relationships with leaders of organized labor and the community, including a broad based Advisory Board. These leaders help promote participation in the Labor Studies program, and assure evaluation and feedback from the labor movement to help shape future programs. The Labor Center staff also advise Labor Studies students and prospective students, and the Center maintains a collection of labor DVDs available for free loan.


Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

​Labor Studies is designed to train students, union leaders, human relations professionals, and workers in the practical, applied skills and up-to-date knowledge of labor relations and for positions in union leadership. Employees in labor and human relations can develop career skills and prepare for positions or advancement in labor unions, labor relations, human relations and government. The instructors are all experts who are active in the field.

The Labor Studies Program offers the following alternative patterns of learning:
  • courses may be completed as desired to develop specific skills to meet the needs of the individual student;
  • courses may be completed to meet the requirements of the Associate Degree;
  • courses may be completed to meet the 24 units required to earn the Certificate of Achievement in Labor Studies.

By fulfilling the program requirements, students will have a greater understanding of the contributions of labor and the skills necessary for union leadership. This is particularly relevant in Los Angeles, with some 250 local unions with a combined membership of more than half a million union members. Students who complete the requirements for the Associate Degree in Labor Studies will have a working knowledge of labor organizations, their structure, philosophy and day to day operations.
