Work defines so much of our lives - our position in society, our economic well-being, even our self-image. Labour Studies offered by Brock University is an interdisciplinary field and is home to popular courses including Labor Relations in Professional Sports, Sex Work and Sex Workers, Animals at Work, and our simulation-based Collective Bargaining course.


You'll find a mix of theoretical and applied courses designed to prepare you for a wide range of careers in labour and employment relations, workplace education and training, public policy and administration, and social justice and advocacy.
