The 12 credit hour graduate certificate in organizational change is a graduate level, four-course series from the Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs and the Center for the Study of Organizational Change (CSOC) designed for researchers and consultants to organizations. The courses are taught by faculty from the social and behavioral sciences who have years of experience researching, writing, and consulting to public, private, and nonprofit organizations.
Courses are nine weeks in length and frequently integrate actual cases from the faculty’s experience with concepts and theories from readings and lectures. In this 100 percent online program, you will learn how theory informs the practice of psychosocial organizational assessment, diagnosis, and intervention. Additionally, you will apply critical thinking to link organization theories and interventions in unique organizational contexts.
