Labor Studies Online

Through the Labor Studies Online program, the Division of Labor Studies offers online courses and degrees to meet the needs of students seeking distance education opportunities. With the wide array of online course offerings, it is possible for students to fulfill degree requirements for all Labor Studies degrees entirely online.



Labor Studies Online courses are very similar to our classroom courses in content and workload. As in a classroom, online students complete readings and other assignments and then discuss them with their instructor and classmates. The difference is that these discussions take place completely online through the IU Oncourse system (oncourse.iu.edu).

Labor Studies Online courses are designed to be very flexible. Students log into their courses on a regular basis but not at designated times. Online discussions take place in "threaded discussion forums," where students and instructors interact with one another at various times throughout the week—each logging into the class at times convenient to them.

Labor Studies Online courses include students from all eight IU campuses and are available to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our courses are offered on a semester schedule during IU's 15-week fall and spring semesters and 6-week intensive summer sessions.

Students enroll in Labor Studies Online classes the same way they enroll in classroom courses—through the registrar at an IU campus. Faculty advisors provide guidance to Labor Studies Online students throughout their course of study. On most campuses, the tuition and fees for online classes are the same as for traditional classroom courses.
