The Center for Global Workers’ Rights and School of Labor and Employment Relations at Penn State University offers a twelve-month Master of Professional Studies in Labor and Global Workers’ Rights (LGWR). The program is designed for U.S. and international labour activists interested in labour rights, social justice, and global solidarity. It focuses on global workers’ rights, work and gender, race and migration, social movements, and labour relations systems around the world.

Professors teaching in the program have rich experience in the global labour movement and labour-related research. Students will have opportunities to intern with unions and labour groups and to dialogue with labour scholars and activists through symposiums, speaker series, film series, and more. Graduate fellowships, including tuition waivers, are available.

This Master’s program is part of the Global Labor University, a network of universities in five countries (Brazil, India, Germany, South Africa, and the U.S.) along with global union federations, national unions, and the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Applicants will be admitted on a rolling basis. The final deadline is January 31, 2024.
