Development Communication in UPLB

Hello, I have several questions regarding this course. Medyo nalilito pa po kasi ako eh. Sorry kung marami akong itatanong. :D

1. Ano kinaibahan niya sa CommArts?
2. Anong mga pwedeng job opportunities dito?
3. Kung may Development Communication graduates po dito, ano pong klase ang work niyo ngayon?
4. Will you recommend this course, I mean, kung wise ba siyang kunin? Kasi syempre po I'm also thinking of my future.
5. Ano po yung mga subjects?

Please give your insights and opinions about this course. It will be very much appreciated. Thanks po! :)

    Not from this program, but what I only know is that UPLB is a recognized global leader in this field.
  • plokijuplokiju let me sleep again
    i actually have no idea about Development Communication so I researched:

    http://www.devcom.edu.ph/site/academic-programs.html

    medyo vague pa sa akin pero sa pagkakaintindi ko, more on sa print and broadcast media. similar to journalism or mass communication. but is more concentrated on the subject of development especially in education. They may be those behind educational programs or materials. They can also be journalists...

    pasensya na, ito lang yung understanding ko dun sa mga courses/subjects.

    Ganoon din po pagkakaintindi ko . . . :D Thanks for the link!

  • UPLB is the only institution of higher learning in the whole world that offers BS-MS-PhD in Development Communication. The undergraduate program offers majors in Science Communication, Educational Communication, Community Broadcasting & Development Journalism.

    DEVCOM is a Communication Program with a Purpose. On the other hand, COMARTS is more on the aesthetic side, in general.

    1. Ano kinaibahan niya sa CommArts?
    Yun nga, may "Purpose" ang DEVCOM

    2. Anong mga pwedeng job opportunities dito?
    Sa government agencies, almost same job opportunities with COMARTS

    3. Kung may Development Communication graduates po dito, ano pong klase ang work niyo ngayon?
    Karamihan nasa Academe.

    4. Will you recommend this course, I mean, kung wise ba siyang kunin? Kasi syempre po I'm also thinking of my future.

    Thanks for the response! :D Tanong lang po, mahirap po ba makakuha ng trabaho ang DevCom graduates?
  • PolyphasePolyphase Member PExer
    I have friends na grad ng DevCom. May nagnursing, law, tourguides, devcom teacher pero mostly jobs na similar sa comm arts or mass comm. Pero sabi nila they had regrets kasi mahirap kumuha ng work at nice paying job.

    Oh. . . That's my worry as well. Kaya din di ako sure if I'm going to continue with this. Thanks very much for the response.
  • PolyphasePolyphase Member PExer
    You will still have higher chances of getting hired after grad but dont expect a high paying job if devcom pinili mo. You will start at the bottom I tell you.lol

    Thanks for the info. :D
  • It's usually defined as the kind of communication that brings about social change. Meaning, the nature of DevCom is heavily pragmatic since it deals with the development aspect of communication. ComArts, like what blueandsilver1 mentioned, is rather for the aesthetic and the appeal of the masses. :)

    Thanks for your response, though it's a bit late. :)) I have a full understanding of what DevCom really is by now, after taking 2 DEVC subjects.
