This course examines how individuals negotiate their relationships with organizations primarily as employees of organizations, but also as consumers of services offered by organizations. Topics include organizational controls, employee identification and resistance, and the management of work and personal-life interrelationships, including the impact of new Information and communication technologies. Organizations are considered as sources of identity, sites for entertainment and socializing, sites for enacting spirituality and religion, sources of social relationships and support, and substitutes for different aspects of family (e.g., mentor-parents; co-worker spouses). Prerequisite(s): declared COM major/minor with A COM 265X, and majors must have completed a statistics/logic course (A MAT 108, A SOC 221, R Criminal Justice 281, A PSY 210, or A PHI 210).
