    ORGANIZATIONAL PSYCH

    Spring Quarter 2005

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Psychology 1, 41.

    Course Content: This course provides an introduction to individual and interpersonal behavior in complex organizations. We examine the interrelationships among psychological variables (perception, motivation, learning), social psychological variables (communication, interpersonal influence, group processes, small group dynamics) and sociological variables (social structure, technology, environment) that determine organizational functioning and personal well-being. This course introduces you to the real world of organizations as well as research and theory in organizational behavior, and you will learn something useful about the changing world of organizations and careers.

     

    Grading: There will be two midterms and a "non-cumulative" final. (The final will cover only the material since the second midterm.) Each exam will consist of 45 multiple-choice questions. Thus, the maximum score for the course would be 135 points. Grading is on a curve, no early finals.
