About Industrial Relations
Masters degrees in Industrial Relations explore the relationships between groups of working people and their employers. Courses may focus on the management and role of representative organisations such as trade unions or lobbying groups.
Courses are typically taught MA and MSc degrees, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Business or Communication Studies.
These courses explore the relationship between staff members, business owners and government agencies, working to understand Industrial Relations from local to international scales.
This includes scrutiny of labour management, analysing trade union organisation, and exploring performance and reward management systems. Many courses offer you the opportunity to undertake an industrial placement to broaden your vocational skills. Through these you may specialise in particular industries such as the Medical and Pharma industry, the Energy Sectors, or Retail.
A Masters in this field could help you to start up your own business or provide you with suitable experience to work across a range of departments within an existing organisation. Specialist employers include trade unions, political organisations or legal agencies.
