Student Resources

Academic Advising

The Student Affairs Officer of the Labor Studies program believes in a holistic approach to student advising; one that encompasses academic, career, and personal counseling for not only interested and current labor studies students, but also for students having taken or currently taking Labor Studies courses. The flexibility and interdisciplinary nature of the program allows the Student Affairs Officer to provide one-on-one counseling that focuses on tailoring the academic resources of the program to fit the students’ needs and interests.

Students are encouraged to contact the Student Affairs Officer to declare the program and design a coherent program of coursework.

Due to the COVID-19, academic advising will be offered via Zoom by appointment. To sign up for an appointment, please visit: https://calendly.com/uclalaborstudies 

Also, students can submit their inquiries via e-mail to laborstudies@irle.ucla.edu
