As they study workers, employers, and the government policies affecting them, the faculty members of this department draw on the fields of administration, economics, history, political science and law to further the student's understanding of industrial and labor relations. Our courses explore ILR issues within the framework of American society, stress fundamental forces of change, and analyze texts and empirical data with methods drawn from the social sciences, the humanities, and the legal professions.
