SOCI 421 - Social Organizations

(3 cr) This course focuses upon the nature and structure of social organizations. This includes the assessment of the impact of organizational structure upon individuals and society. A discussion of both informal and formal groups is presented within the course material. The course also introduces the student to the concept of globalization and the effects of this process. Issues originating with the works of Weber, Taylor, and Ford lead to the contemporary analyses of Ritzer, Tomlinson, Giddens, and others. The material focuses upon the relationship between the structure of the organization and the resulting consciousness of the participants of the organizations.
