"Principles and Practice of Organization Development" (POLS 580-50) is taught by Eric Austin of MSU's political science department in a hybrid format. The class runs from May 18 to Aug.7. Students will meet on campus each Monday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and take part in supplemental learning online. Students must have access to a computer and Internet connection.
The class will include a combination of classroom and field experiences. Students will study a range of organizational and managerial issues as well as change processes designed to maximize the effectiveness of participatory processes in organizations of all sizes and types.
Austin says the course, which can be taken for three graduate credits, is appropriate for those who work in non-profits, community organizations and public organizations. Off-campus students do not have to be admitted to MSU in order to take the course.
The course is offered through MSU Extended University. For more information or to register, go to http://eu.montana.edu/credit and look for the course under political science.
