Course: Organizational Communications (CO-301-1)
Bureaucracies and large-sized organizational structures abound in modern America. Frankly, there is no escaping this reality. Organization Communications takes historical, structural and ethical perspectives in examining the nature and role of communications within the organizational framework. Direct attention will be given to applying these per-spectives to the phenomenon of the modern sports industries, but comparative and contrasting attention will be given to large, midsize and small businesses; and to those organizations that exist in the not-for-profit sector. Although part of the Sports Communications Sequence, Organizational Communications is highly recommended for all students interested in better understanding and affecting the dynamics involved in effective communications within any organizational framework. Generally offered yearly. General Education choice for Part C. 3 credits.
