PSYC 44 Psychology and Organizations

Leadership and teamwork are among the most highly prized skills in today's businesses. This course will explore the psychological underpinnings of these and other organizational behaviors, including decision-making, communication, and conflict resolution. How do we understand leadership? How do power and status affect communication in a hierarchy? How can conflict lead to creativity? We will delve into the answers with a combination of reading and discussion, in-class role-plays and exercises, and project-based learning. Our goal is to advance an understanding of why people behave the way they do in workgroups and in organizations.

SOC

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
