MGMT 513: Leading People in Organizations

Leaders and managers achieve goals working with and through others. They must be skilled in developing individuals to work in teams, in facilitating teams, and in managing conflict. Leaders and managers must understand organizational and national cultures and how they affect the achievement of goals. They must not only hold strong ethical values, but also model them. This course examines the role of managers as leaders in organizations and develops knowledge and skills needed by managers in today’s business environment to successfully achieve organizational goals.  This course focuses on who leaders are and what leaders do.  It is important to know what accounts for effective leadership and how one can become an effective leader.  Subsequently, course material will focus upon fundamental principles of leadership and how these principles relate to becoming an effective leader.  Emphasis will be placed on self-reflection and analysis in regard to developing one’s own leadership skills.

PSYC 290: Child and Adolescent Development in Cultural Context

This course will provide students with exposure to cultural influences on child and adolescent development. We will cover topics such as language, schooling, peer culture, play, and family relationships, as well as cultural risk factors that may contribute to social problems and substance use. Spain will serve as a context for cultural comparison with which we can study how culture differentially contributes to the development of the person. Using naturalistic observation methodologies and cross-cultural comparison techniques, we will study development in a cultural context. Note: This course is open to both psychology and non-psychology majors. For non-majors, the course is a general elective. For psychology majors, this course can count as your developmental cluster requirement.
