What Sets the MLER Program Apart?
The MLER gives you a broad education with a mix of classes. Classes both build your skills for future employment and expand your intellectual horizons.
The MLER offers you the opportunity to develop skills that will maximize your future professional employment opportunities. We also provide you with assistance in getting internships, part-time jobs, and placement upon graduation.
The MLER gives you perspective. It allows you to look at employment relations from a range of different perspectives, such as: labor, management, employees, citizen activists, and that of society as a whole.
MLER students come from a variety of racial, ethnic, and national backgrounds. Both men and women are well represented, as are people of various age groups and social class backgrounds.
The MLER gives you the opportunity to build the professional skills that are appropriate for multiple and varied career goals. This is not a “one size fits all” program. You will be able to work with your career advisers to create an individualized program appropriate to your existing skills/knowledge and your desired professional future.
The MLER offers a supportive learning environment that will connect you to a community of active scholars, teachers, learners, and involved citizens. This community values critical thinking and intellectual exchange.
Courses are scheduled at times convenient for working adults. You may complete the MLER program on either a full-time or part-time basis.
