About Industrial Relations
About Industrial Relations
Industrial Relations is an interdisciplinary program, enabling students in the Faculty of Arts to study Labour-Management Relations. Students take courses in Economics, Labour-Management Relations and Sociology. These courses examine the economic and social forces affecting employer-employee relations in both national and global contexts.
Changes may be made in the program after this publication was prepared. For the most up-to-date information on the program, new and returning students should refer to the website.
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Faculty Program Industrial Relations (54 credits)
The Faculty Program Industrial Relations provides students with a basic knowledge of industrial relations institutions and practices as well as the principal social and economic forces that underlie them. The program is composed of 54 credits of courses drawn from the Departments of Economics and Sociology within the Faculty of Arts and from labour-management relations within the Desautels Faculty of Management
Credits outside Arts and Science: Students in the Faculty Program Industrial Relations may take no more than 30 credits in courses outside of the Faculties of Arts and of Science.

Moreover, in the U1 year a student should take at most only one 3-credit elective course in the Desautels Faculty of Management in addition to the required courses, INDR 294 and MGCR 222.
