Developing in-depth knowledge of social and legal systems. Improving understanding of organizational and human behavior. Implementing changes to improve the lives of individuals and communities. It's how our graduates lead the charge to improve social policy and law. Through our dual degree program, students earn a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from the SUNY Buffalo Law School and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from the UB School of Social Work. The collaborative program reduces the total time and credits compared to completing each degree separately.
This course will focus on the theories and empirical knowledge of organizational behavior, development and the change exemplified by theories of bureaucracy, conflict theory, human relations theory and decision making theory.
