The University of Tulsa offers a bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree in Organizational Studies through the Kendall College of Arts and Sciences. Organizational Studies is an interdisciplinary major composed of 30 hours of course work designed for those students who wish to study organizational behavior and structure in the public and private realms, without limiting themselves to one of the participating disciplines.
- Human Resources Manager
- Community Services Manager
- Administrative Service Manager
The major blends the disciplines of Organizational Communication and Industrial/Organizational Psychology with Management. The idea is to provide students with knowledge and skills that will prepare them for entry-level administrative positions in both public and private organizations. The degree requires all students to complete a minor.
The organizational studies major builds on the general education through a variety of courses in business, management, communication and psychology. The interdisciplinary degree allows students to custom design their schedule based on individual interest. Students take courses offered by both the Kendall College of Arts and Sciences and the Collins College of Business, allowing a wide range of academic knowledge and freedom.
Students are encouraged to participate in internships for credit or study abroad. During the senior year, students complete a senior project worth credit three hours.
