Research and Field Experience

This course gives students experience outside of the classroom by placing them with an organization that deals with labour issues – a union, a community group, or a government agency. Students will gain valuable field experience, and do guided research at their placement which they will use to write a final report. There is also a thesis option, which allows students to choose their own topic in Labour Studies, research it in depth, and write a major analytical paper. Enrolment in the field experience option is limited; students must apply to the Labour Studies Office by March 1.
