GPHD7219: Psychology of Organizational Change

Credits 3
Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology is the application of social science methods and principles to industrial and organizational behavior. Topics include teams in organizations, motivation, individual differences, attitudes and emotions relevant to work, stress and well-being, fairness and diversity within organizations, leadership and organizational change and development. The ultimate objective of this discipline is to maximize both employee well-being and organizational effectiveness. Because of the data-intensive nature of I/O Psychology, students with a basic understanding of how empirical psychological research is conducted (from statistics, Psychological Research Methods, Social Psychology or Personality), will find the course material more accessible.
