Leading with Values MO 620

School: Ross School of Business, Management & Organizations
Credits: 1.5
Course Description: With the plethora of recent high-profile corporate scandals and the financial crisis being blamed in part by the unethical behavior of Wall Street, it is increasingly important to understand how to be an ethical leader. Leading with Values (MO 620) is aimed to help you develop insights about your own values and to understand how to overcome human tendencies that often disconnect our values from our behaviors. Throughout this course we will focus on what is means to lead with values-so the focus is not about being a good follower but rather how to be an ethical leader.

Decision Processes PSYCH 449

School: Psychology
Credits: 3
Prerequisites: STATS 350 or 425
Course Description: A "decision" is a commitment to a course of action that is intended to produce outcomes that are satisfying to particular people. Decision making plays a prominent role in the phenomena addressed in many disciplines. PhD students who want their research to make significant contributions to understanding those phenomena would do well to become aware of current as well as classical developments in decision psychology. PSYCH 722 is intended to help students achieve such awareness. The lectures for the course are shared with PSYCH 449 (whose description prospective PSYCH 722 students should consult). The elements of the course that are unique to PSYCH 722 are evident in the discussion sessions, supplementary readings, and course requirements. The most critical of the latter are students reflections' on readings and their course projects, which entail the assembling of an annotated bibliography on a decision or decision-related topic of the student's choosing.

Sociological Analysis of Deviance PSYCH 488

School: Psychology
Credits: 3
Course Description: This course is an introductory sociological analysis of select acts, persons, and identities that are morally condemned. Special emphasis is directed to the co-constitutive relationship of deviance and conventionality, the variability of deviance in time and space, and the political nature of the production and deployment of categories of deviance. Among the topics of inquiry are historical case studies of "legislated" morality (e.g., deviant drinking and opiate use), the development of deviant identities and deviant subcultures, the medicalization of deviance (e.g., non-normative sexual and gender identities), and types and dynamics of social control. The course seeks to encourage and cultivate a critical, reflexive sociological perspective on social life by considering the links between "deviance" and social spheres of power including race, class, gender, and sexuality.
