This course is designed to introduce students to both classical and contemporary theories of organizational communication. Specific topics to be covered include metatheoretical perspectives, a historical overview of the meaning of work, socialization, organizational communication culture, power, technological advances, sexual harassment, and diversity. We will explore contemporary issues from both a theoretical and a pragmatic approach. The objectives of this course are to stimulate your creative and critical thinking about the role of communication in the organizing process and to develop your abilities to integrate theories with practice.
