Labor Relations Graduate Certificate Program

human resources degree programs - MS in Labor Relations and Human Resources Coordinator
Richard W. Scholl, Ph.D.
Director, Charles T. Schmidt, Jr.
Labor Research Center

Our Graduate Certificate Program in Labor Relations allows students to take a series of graduate-level courses without matriculating in the full master's degree program. They can be taken independently or in conjunction with another master's degree program such a nursing, MPA or MBA.  The program serves the needs of students who hold or aspire to a labor relations position with labor, business, or government organizations.  Additionally, students who do not work directly in this field, but hold positions requiring knowledge of labor relations, will also find this program helpful.

Admission Requirements and Procedures

To be considered for admission, applicants must show evidence of ability to do graduate level course work.  This ability is generally demonstrated by:

  1. Undergraduate Degree, and
  2. Professional experience

Applicants are required to complete the standard graduate school application, complete with undergraduate transcripts and 2 letters of recommendation.  It is recommended that applicants include a  professional resume.  To apply, go to: www.uri.edu/gsadmis/. Note that there is no application fee required for application to this certificate program.

Program Requirements
Admitted students will develop a four course (12 credit) program of study with the Director of the Schmidt Labor Research Center based on the student's needs.  The certificates are awarded when the student completes the four course sequence with a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or greater.
