Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

Organizational Behaviour (OBEH)

Department of Psychology, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences

The study of behaviour and the behavioural processes of individuals and groups within organizations is an especially important focus for those interested in human welfare and productivity. The Minor in Organizational Behaviour is for students seeking to broaden their knowledge beyond their major area of study and may be of particular value for those interested in the dynamics of organizational structures within the private and/or public domains. Although this program should provide a meaningful complement for a significant number of Major options, the program might be of particular interest to those students considering a future management and/or business career.
