Beyond the Degree
What can you do with a degree in Labour Studies?

Our program has an excellent record when it comes to post-graduation employment. In Manitoba and across Canada Labour Studies graduates with Advanced Major degrees find jobs as personnel officers with corporations and municipalities, with private firms and crown corporations, as bargaining agents for unions, as researchers for governments and social-action groups, as policy developers, as media reporters and analysts.  Our graduates are considered by many employers to be skilled in labour relations and usually find good jobs -- or get accepted into graduate programs -- almost immediately after graduation.

What about further study?

Our graduates are welcomed with open arms into Industrial Relations and Labour Studies programs, including McMaster University (Hamilton), the University of Toronto, Queen’s University (Kingston), and foreign universities.  Many Labour Studies graduates study law, and are accepted into law schools in Manitoba and across the country.
