Communications 3311 3.0 Organizational Communication is being
taught by Professor Dalton Kehoe at York University.
Much of what human beings accomplish alone or with others in the
modern world is achieved in the context of formal organizations.
The purpose of this course is to familiarize the student with the
main concepts, viewpoints, research findings and applications in the
field of organizational communication.
The relationships between organizational size, complexity, tasks and
external environments and the nature, quality and flow patterns of
intra-organizational communication will be analyzed. We will study:
(1) how organizational structure and functioning changes in order to
respond to changes in external environments and, (2) the
interpersonal and technical approaches used to solving communication
problems in organizations as they change.
