Since 2014, the IAM has partnered with the State University of New York’s Empire State College (ESC) to offer associate’s and bachelor’s degrees in Labor Studies through ESC’s Harry Van Arsdale, Jr. Center for Labor Studies in New York City.
The partnership also offers a master’s degree in Work and Labor Policy. Degree programs are conducted online, with week-long residencies that occur once a semester at the IAM’s William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center in Hollywood, MD.
Our members lead busy lives, and the adult-focused learning at ESC makes them a perfect fit. Registration for the fall semester is open now and classes start September 3, 2019. Residencies are scheduled for the week of September 29 for both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs. You can apply online at www.esc.edu ; members who use the code ECPTRIAM will get their application fee waived.
