SOCI312 - Organizational Sociology


This course examines the nature of formal organizations in society. Organizations are a distinct form of modern society and human interaction. They shape us as individuals, and they affect the structure of society. Students will explore key organizational sociological literature and apply it to practical case studies in areas such as fast food, the military, politics, religion, education, and social movements, their structures and outcomes. Key substantive areas of analysis will include organizational processes, such as power, leadership and change, and organizational environments and inter-organizational relationships.
