Co-Concentration in Organizational Behavior

Doctoral Level

Ph.D. students in any area of Psychology may propose to complete a co-concentration (similar to a minor) in Organizational Behavior (OB). This request will normally be considered during the student’s portfolio committee meeting. A faculty member in Organizational Behavior must approve the request, and at least one tool or item in the student’s portfolio must be in the area of Organizational Behavior.

If approved, students will be required to complete 16 units in Organizational Behavior. The student’s portfolio committee must approve the specific courses that will count towards the 16-unit co-concentration. At least 2 of these courses must be core courses. In most cases, 3 of these courses will be core courses. These core courses are subject to the same regulations as other core courses in the student’s program, i.e. each course must be passed with a grade of “B” or higher. Thus the required courses for a co-concentration in Organizational Behavior will be made up of:

Core Courses (2-3 courses, 8-12 units)

Psych 319: Organizational Behavior (4 units)
Psych 321: Organizational Theory (4 units)
Psych 350s: Organizational Development & Change (4 units)

1-2 Additional Courses in Organizational Behavior

4-8 units
