This course is devoted to the use of social science research methods to study organizations, emphasizing interviewing, organizational network analysis, and organizational survey methods. Our team-based approach combines lecture, applications, and field research methods. Course topics include organizations and social capital, team and organizational design, the use of organizational network analysis, and the use of interviewing and surveys in organizations.

This course emphasizes learning by doing. You and your team will design and carry out a field project in a client organization. This project is an opportunity to experience the study of an organizational unit from start to finish, including designing and administering the survey instrument, planning and conducting the data analysis, interpreting and communicating the results in both written and oral formats, and providing feedback to the client organization.
