Labor Studies opportunity at Penn State University


The Department of Labor Studies and Employment Relations at Penn State University is offering two-year Graduate Assistantships for labor-oriented students interested in pursuing a M.S. in HRER (Human Resources and Employment Relations) degree beginning Spring or Fall 2012. We are particularly interested in students who are planning to pursue careers working for unions. These assistantships cover all the costs of the degree program, including tuition and living costs, in exchange for 20 hours a week working with a faculty member as a research or teaching assistant. Applicants must meet requirements for admission to the M.S. program. Assistantships will be awarded on a competitive basis.

The Department has a long tradition of sending students on to work for unions and we believe it is important for programs like ours to continue to develop energetic, bright, and well-prepared young people for careers in the labor movement.

Applicants need to apply to the M.S. program and clearly state their interests in the labor movement in the applicant statement. They should also indicate their interest in being considered for financial assistance. More info on the M.S. program and the application process can be found at
