The Organizational Studies major is offered at Pitzer College and may be available to Scripps students. Please consult with the appropriate department chair (or equivalent) at the home college to discuss specific major/minor requirements. Scripps students who declare this major must complete a senior thesis. In addition to having a faculty major adviser in this discipline, Scripps students must maintain a primary Scripps faculty adviser.
Organizational Studies is an interdisciplinary course of study focusing on administrative, economic, political, psychological and sociological factors that affect cooperative human systems. A major in Organizational Studies emphasizes an understanding of how organizations operate, how they affect society and how they change. Students are encouraged to design a specific thematic focus to structure the depth of their study.
Students interested in public administration, business administration, public health administration, organizational behavior, industrial psychology, labor, or sociology of work may find this program an appropriate preparation for either career or graduate work in these areas.
Please refer to the Pitzer College catalog for information about major requirements.
