SOC 3720 Sociology of Organization

This course examines various theoretical perspectives, including images of organizations as decision making systems, as arenas for conflict over power and status, and as elements in broader social and cultural milieus. Within this framework students examine the characteristics of organizational cultures, communication patterns, the role of elites, sources of effective leadership, coercion and control, structures of status and opportunities, market exhanges and exploitation, decision-making processes, treatment of conflict and differences, and participation and recognition of performances of its members.
