The Interdisciplinary Nature of Organizational Studies

Organizational studies is built on a foundation of three disciplines--sociology, economics, and psychology. Each discipline contributes a unique lens through which to see organizations, their forms, and their processes. These three perspectives together give students broad scope for understanding an organizational world.

The Interdisciplinary Program in Organizational Studies provides students with grounding in each of these disciplines and allows them to create new ways of seeing and understanding organizations. Organizational Studies prepares students in new ways about how organizations influence our lives and our world.
