Students will learn how to observe groups and to understand their dynamics; they will have a firm grasp of the main theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of groups, and will learn how to manage relationships between minority and majority group members.
By the end of the course students will be able to:
- develop a sound knowledge of group processes in organizational and social settings;
