SUMMARY

Choosing to study Labor Studies is a valuable choice and often an obligatory first step for undergrads intending to begin a career as an union organizer, a labor relations specialist, or an union representative. Interestingly, nationally, labor studies is a ​unique degree ranking as the 387th most popular area of study. Last year alone, there were 50 labor studies diplomas received. In-state tuition at public institutions is, on average, Infinity times more spendy than their private equivalents.

With only 12 institutions having programs for labor studies you may have a more finite list of the institutions you can choose from. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other labor studies undergrads, consider looking at schools in California which have more undergraduates admitted to labor studies than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to pursue labor studies is in the Far West region with California State University-Dominguez Hills and San Francisco State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the best conference to major in labor studies is the California Collegiate Athletic Association with California State University-Dominguez Hills representing the conference. On that topic, our choice for the best university for labor studies is CUNY Queens College. You might also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The objectively best school might not actually be the 'best' school for every student. There might be lots of angels to consider when choosing ​university. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might sway your feelings on where to go to school. Here at Authority, we weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which labor studies university has the best campus, the winner is San Francisco State University.

You can find our well researched list for the universities with the best student life&nbsphere and our selection of the college with the best student life for labor studies is San Francisco State University.

Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis&nbspis our most expensive school for labor studies, at least regarding out of state attendance. We have a list of the most expensive&nbspuniversities that could put the price tag of Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis&nbspinto perspective.

In-state learners can anticipate paying around $8,700 for a degree in labor studies. The price deflates substantially to a median of $21,800 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the college constituting the best value for labor studies: San Francisco State University. Here you will find our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value&nbspoverall. That being said, this section is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for labor studies majors can cover a wide range, but within two-years of finishing the degree students will typically make around $44,900. There is much variation in earnings potential; top earners can rake in up to $89,200. Even right out of university, the minimum earning jobs within the labor studies field make $30,700, which could be worse. The top earning graduates for labor studies studied at San Francisco State University&nbspand if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The college with the most composite diversity for labor studies is CUNY Queens College&nbspand here you can find our general list for the colleges which have the most diversity.

Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 91st percentile. White collegians compose the largest share at 39% of scholars studying labor studies. Additionally, 79% of students pursuing a labor studies major are women.

We have insufficient professors data for labor studies to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. As we including information other than simply rankings it becomes clear that the school with the overall best instructors for labor studies is Eastern Connecticut State University. One can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the top examples of instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for labor studies is CUNY Queens College. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you understand that looking at academics with context only shaped by superlatives can cause problems. We hope you read our more nuanced pages on individual schools and explore some of our helpful background 'blog posts' on useful details to think about as your university search continues.
