Organizational Communication is a course founded and first offered in the University of the Philippines- Manila
Organizational Communication is the course I am taking and finishing. It is widely unknown throughout the country, the community, inside the school and in many other places. So whenever I hear about someone who knows what Organizational Communication is, a smile spreads across my face because I know I don’t have to explain anymore. It is as simple as it is stated, you can take Organizational Communication as it is and explain it to yourself — communication in organizations. And in organizations, there are people, so long as there is the human race, Organizational Communication graduates wouldn’t need to worry too much about work. This, I assume.
The University of the Philippines-Manila specifically the Department of Arts and Communication, is the authentic home of Organizational Communication. Professor Sarile, who is until now teaching one of the course requirements in the degree, is one of the responsible persons why Organizational Communication is a course now.
Organizational Communication still lacks its own distinction from other degrees such as mass communication and the like. Yet a wide variety of careers are offered for an Organizational Communication graduate – from events management, to public relations, to advertising, to corporate communication – one only has to know what career path to pursue. In the workplace, it seems to be not that well known, there is still proving in the business world needed from its graduates.
Organizational Communication Society is my org
When you are an Organizational Communication student, Organizational Communication Society is the org to be. It is also known as ORCOMSOC. In my membership in ORCOMSOC, I have witnessed parties and seminars.
Acquaintance parties are for Organizational Communication students to mingle and to socialize with other year levels of the same course. Usually held during July, the main purpose of the event is for familiarization so that whenever they need help they sure know who the right people to ask. The other party held every year is the Organizational Communication pageant (ORCOM night) which involves competition among the year level. Each level has one boy and one girl representative and they vie for the crown of Mr. and Ms. Organizational Communication. This event is not only a party but part of the profit goes to the chosen beneficiary of the org in that year.
A very useful seminar Eto Kami Ngayon (EKN) is a seminar where Organizational Communication graduates share stories — about their present jobs, experiences in getting jobs and many others. Held annually and is intended for the freshmen Organizational Communication students to have a better understanding about the course. Also, to help them have a clearer perception about the course.
These are only some facts about Organizational Communication. I know these are not enough. If you want real experience, then come enroll under BA Organizational Communication course, only here in UP- MANILA.
