MA International Labour and Trade Union Studies

Course content

Recuiting now for September 2016 entry


Welcome to the MA International Labour & Trade Union Studies (MA ILTUS). The MA completes Ruskin’s new programme of degree courses for labour movement activists, building on our extensive past and current work with UK unions, and with international students.

Ruskin College is an associate member of the Global Labour University www.global-labour-university.org


Ruskin College proudly hosts the annual Critical Labour Studies symposium http://criticallabourstudies.org.uk/site/

Ruskin College has a memorandum of understanding with Empire State College in order to collaborate around the provision of education for trade unionists http://www.esc.edu/labor-studies-center/

The context of the MA – crisis and renewal of organised labour

Labour movements worldwide are seen as being in crisis and are actively seeking ways of renewal. These issues are closely linked with globalisation and with fluidity among emergent transitional and developing states and countries. Ruskin’s place in the labour movement, together with academic staff researching, writing and teaching in the field, puts it in a good position to become a centre of debate and scholarship in this project.

The Ruskin MA offers practitioners and scholars of such challenges the conceptual, analytical and critical framework for understanding and explaining labour movement change.
