Labour Studies is a dynamic field of study distinguished by its focus on work and labour relations. Work affects everyone and everything — our work determines how we spend many of our waking hours and shapes our position in society, our health and economic well-being, and our self-image. It defines the nature of our society and economy.

Brock Labour Studies is the fastest growing program of its kind in Canada and home to the country’s first Labour Studies co-op program. We boast award-winning and engaging professors, and courses that are practical, relevant, and thought-provoking, some of which are unique in the world.

Labour Studies provides excellent preparation for a range of meaningful, rewarding, and interesting careers in a wide variety of fields, including labour relations, labour law, human resources, mediation, public policy and administration, and social justice advocacy.
