Course Description: This course introduces various topics central to the sociological understanding of organizations. The course presents and discusses important sociological theories and research on organizations. The course is structured around six theoretical strands of thought or perspectives: the managerial-psycho logistic perspective, the Durkheim-human-relations-systems perspective, the interaction-negotiated-order perspective, the Weber-social-action-institutional perspective, the Marxian-labor-process perspective, and the post structuralist and postmodern perspective. The courses uses these perspectives as lenses to view and study various topics concerning organizations. Students explore a wide range of core concepts of the sociological field. The course covers topics including: organizational structure, organizational change, work and occupations, work ethics and excellence, organizational culture, and power issues in and around organizations. Each week of the course focuses on a specific topic through lecture, discussion, case study, and group portfolio project. Students use the portfolio project to apply theory to a particular company, and the cumulative portfolio is graded at the end of the course.
