CURRICULUM AND RESEARCH Please provide information on any classes and concentrations that focus on issues related to women or minorities. 4323: Cross-Cultural Issues of Managerial Behavior Introduces students to the work values and behaviors of individuals in countries around the world. Some topics covered in the cross-cultural comparisons discussed will include approaches to motivation, communication, decision making and negotiation. Particular emphasis will be placed on the developed and developing regions of the world that are important participants in today’s global economy. 4403: Undoing Racism Experience has shown us that organizing skills alone are not sufficient to build the kind of coalitions necessary for a broad-based movement for social change. This course examines history, culture, international dynamics of leadership and networking in order to bring about self-awareness and facilitate an understanding of the issues within a racial construct. 4423: Women’s Issues in Human Relations This course examines a perspective on women’s development that accurately reflects women’s experiences rather than society’s traditional view of women. We will explore the effect on women of being silenced, sexualized and subordinated in a patriarchal culture. Particular attention will be given to self-in-relation theory, a developmental theory proposing that women develop their sense of self through relationships but eventually discover that this is not valued or required. Since so many of our attitudes are determined in early life, we will explore the construction of identity in adolescent female development. Views of women’s experiences in different cultures will also be examined.
