The Global Labor Studies certificate is designed for workers and unionists who want to focus their studies on skills-based courses.

Six 3-credit Global Labor Studies courses from Illinois are required. (National Labor College skills-based courses may also be counted with the permission of the Labor Education Program director.)

Students are required to take these two courses:

  • LER 250 Grievance Representation
  • LER 260 Union Organizing

Credit from the Labor Education Program’s online courses can be transferred to the National Labor College and applied toward a Bachelor’s in Labor Studies.

Check out how unionist students describe their experience and also learn about tuition and scholarships. You can order your course books through any online bookstore.
