ILRID 1520 - Introduction to Psychology of Work I: Theories

Fall. 1.5 credits. Letter grades only (no audit).

V. Bohns.

This course examines the underlying psychological processes that impact how and why we work, how we succeed in accomplishing work goals, and how we work together. Students will be exposed to foundational theories from a variety of disciplines, primarily psychology and micro-organizational behavior, but also including behavioral economics and philosophy, which can help us to understand human behavior in work contexts. Topics include theories of personality, motivation, judgment and decision making, social influence, power, conflict and fairness, and morality at work. It is expected that students will subsequently take ILRID1521 Introduction to the Psychology of Work II, which will focus on the application of these theories to specific workplace contexts.
