Labour Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study distinguished by its focus on work and workers’ organizations. Work is central to one’s life. Our work determines how we spend many of our waking hours and it largely defines our position in society, our economic well-being, and our self-image. It also defines the nature of our society and economy. Labour market restructuring, union-management relations, labour law, union politics, working class culture, labour history, and the pursuit of equity and diversity in the workplace are some of the issues that stimulate teaching and research in the Centre for Labour Studies.

The rules around the number of hours a student will be allowed to work may vary based on the country the student chooses to study in. International students are typically able to work up to 20 hours a week.
