Maligayang bati sa inyong mga bagong skolar ng bayan! At kayong pinakabatang henerasyon na magiging alagad ng media. Labis na ikinagagalak ng Kolehiyo ng Pangmadlang Komunikasyon ang makita at makilala ang mga bagong mukha para sa pinakabagong akademikong taon sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas Diliman. Sa loob ng apat na taon (o maaring higit pa, pero utang na loob, hanggang limang taon lang), ang mga gusaling ito ang inyong maituturing na pangalawang tahanan. Dito ay makasasalamuha ninyo ang ibaâ€™t ibang mga tao na may kanya-kanyang karakter at personalidad. Mapalad kayo dahil ang UP ang may pinaka-diverse na student background. Dito rin matututunan at mapag-uusapan ninyo ang ibaâ€™t ibang mga isyu na dapat ninyong malaman bilang mga mag-aaral ng midya. At dito kayo bubuo ng sariliâ€™t sektoral na pinakamatalas na opinyon at pagsusuri hinggil sa inyong nalalaman. Tulad ng maraming pagbabago sa buhay, ang pagpasok ng kolehiyo ay isang malaking hakbang para sa lahat. Marami ang inyong mga iniwan at naiwan-- mga alaala, gawain at lugar. Sa inyong nagmula sa mga malalayong probinsya, iniwan ninyo pansamantala ang inyong mga pamilya at mahal sa buhay. Sa proseso ng pagbabago ay lumalawak ang inyong mundo at hinaharap ninyo ang mas malalaking hamon ng buhay sa paglipas ng panahon.
pinakamalaking hamon na nakaatas ngayon sa inyo: ang paglingkuran ang inyong bayan. Serve the people. Ito ang mga katagang inyong paulit-ulit na maririnig sa UP, at ito ang sentral na diwa na hinahangad ng UP na inyong matutunan sa mga taong ilalagi ninyo sa kanyang lilim, at lalo na sa inyong paglabas sa mas malaking mundo matapos. Na sa inyong bawat gawain, hindi lang ito para sa inyong mga sarili, kayo bilang skolar ng bayan ay may malaking responsibilidad sa lipunan at mamamayang Filipino na nagtulungan para tustusan ang inyong pag-aaral sa UP. Maaring iniisip ninyo na masyado pang maaga para sa mga ganitong salita. Ngunit kung ating titingnan, ang bawat oras ay mahalaga para tuklasin at isabuhay ang pagiging skolar ng bayan. Hindi lamang ito sa pagkain ng isaw, pakikipag-agawan ng klase sa CRS, o pagiging regular na pasahero ng Ikot at Toki. Hindi lamang ito sa pagsuot ng mga baller o t-shirt na nakalagay kung gaano ninyo ipinagmamalaki ang inyong Unibersidad. Ito ay sa paglilingkod sa bayan, na may responsibilidad kayong manindigan parati para sa bayan. Sa huli, malayo na ang narating nating lahat: kayo, sa pagpasok ninyo sa Kolehiyo, ang pinakamagaling sa buong uniberso pagdating sa araling media at komunikasyon, at ang Kolehiyo ng Pangmadlang Komunikasyon, sa nalalapit nitong ika-limampung taon tatlong taon mula ngayon. Kayo ang magsisipagtapos sa Golden Jubilee ng pagkatatag ng Kolehiyo sa UP. Natatangi ang inyong batch, kaya higit na dapat ninyong isapuso ang pagiging skolar ng bayan, at pagiging magaling na mag-aaral ng Maskom: maalam, nakikialam, at may pakialam.
At mas malaking hamon ang inyong haharapin Muli, pagpupugay sa mga bagong Isko at sa pagpasok sa natatanging pambansang Iska, at maligayang pagdating sa Kolehiyo ng unibersidad ng bansa. Sa libu-libong kumuha Pangmadlang Komunikasyon! ng UPCAT, kayo ay kabilang sa iilang pinalad na magkaroon ng oportunidad na makapagaral sa tertiaryong institusyong may pinakaliberal na pag-iisip at kalakaran sa edukasyon. Ngunit ang pagkakataong ito ay hindi dapat maging rason ng pagmamayabang. Sa pagCMC Dean Roland Tolentino sisimula ng inyong buhay dito sa Kolehiyo at UP ay ang simula rin ng inyong pagharap sa
Taus-pusong pagbati sa mga bagong Iskolar ng Bayan na huhubugin ng karanasan, karunungan at panahon upang masikhay na mapaglingkuran ang sambayanan. Sa apat o higit pang taong ilalagi sa pamantasang matututunang mahalin, nawa ay malinang ang inyong husay at galing upang makapagdulot ng panlipunang pagbabago. Na sa edukasyong kakamtin ay lagiâ€™t laging iaalay sa masang tila nakalimutan nang pagsilbihan ng pamahalaan. At upang tuwirang maintindihan ang kalagayan ng lipunang kinagagalawan, isabuhay ang teoryang matututunan sa apat na sulok ng silid aralan at gamitin para makapaglapat ng mga kongkretong solusyon sa mga batayang kondisyon. Bilang mga Iskolar ng Bayan, hamon sa atin na tumindig at umaksyon sa mga isyung ating kahaharapin bilang mga estudyante, alagad ng media at higit sa lahat, bilang mga mamamayang Pilipino. Walang puwang ang pagkikipit-balikat, bagkus dapat ay matapang na gamitin ang kamulatan upang itaguyod ang karapatan at interes ng nakararami. Sa paghubog nga mga susunod na brodkaster ng bayan, lumikha ng mga produksyong magmumulat sa kamalayan ng mga mamamayan. Sa paghubog ng mga susunod na mananaliksik ng bayan, magsagawa ng mga pag-aaral na lilinang sa panlipunang ideolohikal na perspektibang mula sa masa at para sa masa. Sa paghubog ng mga susunod na direktor ng bayan, gumawa ng mga pelikulang malaya at mapagpalaya. Sa paghubog ng mgs susunod na peryodista ng bayan, bigyang-tinig ang mga masang naaapi at matapang na sumulat para makapagdulot ng kritikal na kaisipan at aksyon. Sa paghubog ng mga bagong Alagad ng Media, tumindig para sa masa--- magmulat, maglingkod, makibaka!

Tinig ng Plaridel, the official student publication of the UP College of Mass Communication, came to existence in 1978, when then-President Ferdinand Marcos’ repressive machinery was at its deadliest and most desperate times. Amid this critical scenario, student journalists of the Institute of Mass Communication (now CMC) promoted freedom of expression through writing and publishing their own sentiments in print. TNP underwent a “wall news” revolution in 2005 after being perennially beset by financial setbacks and lack of writers in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Aside from being given airtime by DZUP 1602 to broadcast 30-minute commentaries on pertinent issues affecting the college TNP posted its issues on the college’s information boards and even in UP dormitories. In 2009, TNP received the most website views of any student publication covering the first fully-automated student council elections. Today, through tinigngplaridel.net and other social media platforms, TNP strives to bring events and issues closer to every Alagad ng Midya and Iskolar ng Bayan. Don’t just be in the know. Be the first to know.

CASAA (Palma Hall Annex, ground floor) - Though it may be the butt of many jokes about UP canteen food, don’t be alarmed: CASAA food isn’t bad at all. In fact, with the sheer number of meals, snacks and combos that each stall offers, you’re sure to find something to your liking. Beware, though: CASAA is exceptionally crowded during lunchtime. - Katag (Faculty Center, ground floor) - Katag is the canteen closest to CAL, so if you’re trying to catch up on your readings during your break, you might as well grab a bite here. It serves mostly rice meals and some snacks, and is well-stocked with drinks.
Rodic’s (Shopping Center) - Rodic’s isn’t simply an eatery; it’s an institution. Alumni talk fondly of Rodic’s tapsilog, and for good reason – this is perhaps one of the best tapsilog you will ever taste. Its flavorful, floss-like strips of beef aren’t your thing, then don’t fret: you can grab any of the numerous rice dishes Rodic’s serves. Mashitta (Shopping Center) - Dining in Korean or Japanese restaurants usually puts a strain on the budget, but Mashitta lets UP students enjoy bibimbap, kimchi rice, ramen and sushi at a fraction of the cost. Mashitta also serves quirky Korean ice cream, with flavors like red bean paste. - Kenneth’s Kitchen (NISMED, ground floor—across ASCAL) - To say Kenneth’s Kitchen is a hidden gem would be an understatement. With only a small sign pointing passerby in the right direction, this canteen is one of the least crowded in UP. It serves a variety of rice meals (they often have veggie and fish selections!), sizzling specials, and ice cream. It may be an exercise to search for Kenneth’s, but their baked chicken alone is well worth the effort.
Beach House (behind the Main Library) - Beach House = barbecue. It’s really as simple as that. The small, outdoor eatery has a few other things on the menu, but it’s the barbecue that draws in the hordes of people at lunchtime. For less than 100 pesos, you can have the best barbecue on campus, with rice, a side dish, and drinks to boot! - Canton (at the sidewalk beside CMC) - This well-loved stall satisfies all kinds of cravings, whether for drinks, fish balls, chips, sweets or pancit canton with egg (yes, with egg). Don’t be deceived by the stall’s size: it is a veritable 7-11, stocking not only food but also supplies like blue books, sanitary Lutong Bahay and Lutong Kapitbahay (Area 2, near napkins and index cards. the Post Office) - These two family-owned restaurants serve The Chocolate Kiss Café (Bahay ng Alumni, first and the best and creamiest fruit shakes in UP. If you’re Second floor) craving for some homecooked goodness, LB and LKB - If you’re looking for fancier fare, Chockiss sell really afford able rice meals and sizzling specials. serves a variety of sandwiches, pasta dishes, desserts You’ll feel right at home at either of these two eateries. and other There’s even a shih-tzu at LKB to greet you the momeals sure to make even discriminating Isko diners go ment you walk through the door. “Mmm.” Be sure to spare a little more cash and a lot more time, because Chockiss service tends to be on ROC (Bahay ng Alumni, first floor) the slow side. - Chockiss isn’t the only restaurant worth visiting in Bahay ng Alumni. With a decent menu of Long Island (CMC canteen; near the Main Library) sandwiches, pasta, and desserts, ROC is the lesser- It started as one of the stalls near the Main known rival of its next-door neighbor. But that doesn’t Lib, but Long Island has brought its affordable Italian mean it’s not as good! The restaurant itself is more dishes cheery than Chockiss, and the service, just a tad bit to our college. Aside from favorites like pizza, pasta, faster. Some of the food is cheaper, too. Try the sandempanadas and – gasp! – ice cream, Long Island CMC wiches, they come with chips! serves rice meals as well. Lib walk (Near the Main Library) - There are a number of stalls on either side of the Main Lib, and the choices are varied: though they may at first all seem to sell pre-packed food and pancit canton, some stalls offer burgers and hotdogs, while others offer shakes or Hong Kong-style noodles.

Broadcast Communication So you’ve decided to take up Broadcast Communication. Perhaps you see yourself as an Anderson Cooper type, or Oprah’s long-lost heir. Or as that bigshot director, producer or head writer. Or maybe you see yourself playing it up to an audience, with rotating camera shots and bright lights. Only you can know for sure, but a word to the wise: BC is not just about being on-cam or about being famous, no matter how many people expect you to be—and believe me, they will. BC is all about the basics—the basics, that is, of broadcasting. Broadcast Communication will teach you to write, direct, and star in radio and television productions, or simply, ‘prods’. You will be asked to set yourself apart and bring something fresh, while working with different temperaments. You will also learn about the history of broadcasting, and along the way, appreciate the role broadcasting has played in our history as a country.
Being in Broadcast Communication will also teach you to map out a career—the current curriculum allows you to choose a career track, and you (with the help of your ever-friendly adviser) will choose subjects that best suit your track. Existing career tracks include production, post-production, writing, performance, directing, broadcast journalism, and even marketing/advertising. Much of your time as a BC student will be spent honing your skills in your chosen area of specialization, and this means choosing from an array of electives available in the department, the College, and in the other colleges within UP. This ensures that your time in UP will be spent preparing you for doing the absolute best in the field that you love. Before you cross that finish line and march with your batchmates, BC will also teach you extensively about two ‘R’s— research, and the real world. Broadcast Communication offers various research courses
teach students to be more diligent and persistent, and less research-resistant. Not only will these courses help you in your thesis, but it will also prepare you for much of the background work done in broadcasting. Then, the BC department will temporarily set you free in this little exercise we call an internship, where students spend half their time at DZUP 1602, UP’s official AM radio station, and half at a company related to their field of specialization. This will give you a taste of managing day-to-day work at a radio station, and of working at a company related to your future field, showing you a taste of things to on graduation day. We hope that you have a wonderful time at the Department of Broadcast Communication. Don’t be afraid to push yourself to the limit and to explore new horizons—this is a place where you can let all your crazy, creative ideas fly. Savor every experience, have fun, and good luck!

Major Majors BC 100 - Introduction to Broadcasting. This is going to be the first major subject that you are going to take in the college. After a semester of jumping from one GE class to another, BC100 will put an end to your identity crisis. In this course, you will learn about the history of broadcast communication, the physics of broadcasting and the basics of production. BC102 - Introduction to Radio and Related Media. Radio production is not as easy as it seems because when you’re on air, every second counts. Dead air means dead meat. Your grade doesn’t only depend on your performance but on the group you are working with. Make sure that you work well with your batchmates because in BC, it’s all about team work.
BC 182 - Broadcast Audience Studies. BC182 will develop the skills necessary to understand how audiences receive messages from what they see on television and the internet, and what they hear from the radio. BC 192 - Broadcast Ethics. This subject will teach you how to be a responsible broadcaster. You may be the best broadcaster but if you lack the morals to back it up, everything will be worthless. This class will be interesting because you will be introduced to different situations through cases that have become part of broadcasting history.
BC 104 - Introduction to TV and Related Media. With this course, you will not only watch for aural but also visual elements of production. Don’t worry if your first production will be a big mess. If you’re the producer or director, you have to look after every element of the production and you still have to be sane enough to make sure you don’t go overtime or under-time. However, if the class works as a team, it won’t be as chaotic as it seems.
BC 198 - Internship. You will be required to finish 200 hours of on-the-job training in a media company of your choice. There are many options available when it comes to the companies that you will want to apply to. You may choose a network, a radio station, an advertising agency or a production house. On the other hand, getting accepted in companies is a competition, not only with your classmates, but with students from other universities. It is crucial that you apply as early as you can (with the approval of the department) in your field of expertise.
BC 180 - Political Economy of Broadcasting. With BC180, you will know about the power relations that are in play in media companies and how these relationships influence media content. This course, together with BC 181 and BC 182 make up the 180 series. The 180 series courses draw the line between an ordinary BC student and a critical one. BC 181 - Criticism of Broadcast Text. BC181 aims to develop students who are conscious of the meaning of media texts.
BC199 and BC 200 - Research in Broadcasting and Thesis. In your last year, you are required to pass a thesis before graduating. This is the last requirement so that you can finally get your degree in Broadcast Communication. In BC 199, you will start researching as you make your thesis proposal. It is during BC 200 when you finally put your thesis concept into writing. If you do well with your thesis, who knows, you might get nominated as Best Thesis and actually get the award!
Tools of the Trade (1) Digital recorder - in case you need to do an interview (2) Make-up - ayaw mo naman siguro magmukang model ng Stresstabs sa mga TV prod ‘di ba? Pwes, go put on some makeup. And boys, it doesn’t make you less of a man. Kaya ‘wag na maarte! I know you want it. (3) Virus-free USB - yes, we are that specific. You’ll need this to get your prods if you wanna have your own copy. (4) Blank CD/DVD – kung ayaw mag-play ng VTR o ng bed music mo sa productions, go burn another one! (5) Video Camera and (6) Digital Camera - in case you need to shoot something. Mabuti na ang handa! Mass commandments for BC 1. Believe in your Capacity as a BC student. The BC world is not all about rolling cameras or neon spotlights – it’s more about making mistakes and learning from them. In future production classes, professors and fellow classmates will throw criticisms regarding your work even though you think it’s perfect. But don’t feel bad about it! Keep in mind that they will be doing this not to bring you down, but to help you reach the top. Don’t let a harsh comment (or three) get to you –you’ll be forever trying to escape a prison barred by insecurities you created for yourself. 2. Be Competitive – but not too much. You’ve got to step up and let the people around you know you exist! Recognition is key to grabbing the attention of your professors – and eventually, good grades. Just don’t overdo it though, or else you’ll get more hate than love. 3. Arrive an hour Before Class starts. If you can, come to school
an hour and a half early, just to be sure. Production classes entail a lot of preparation – and it won’t hurt to check things twice or thrice. Plus, there are professors who don’t take latecomers kindly. If you want to avoid producing in the hallway in front of your imaginary friends during class time, best come early. 4. Say “Bye!” to Cramming. Deadlines are pretty much parts of BC life, and dealing with them is vital to survival. Professors tend to give surprise deadlines – if you’re lucky, you get a few days; if you’re not, you get a few hours. So if you want to continue living, stop Facebook-ing or tweeting – at least until the deadlines are, well, dead. 5. Be mindful of your Career track. BC is a broad discipline so you can choose what field to specialize in. For example, there is broadcast journalism for those who want to be reporters; advertising for people who want to create commercials and plugs; and scriptwriting, for those who have stories to tell and dream of seeing them produced on-screen. Whichever you choose, use it as guide in picking what courses to take in the future. 6. The Bulletin board - Check it. Be informed! The bulletin board near the BC department contains all sorts of things like scholarship grant announcements, upcoming events, cancelled classes, and a lot more. Names of students who are entitled to certain citations are also listed there – who knows, you may even see yours there when the time comes! 7. Be Mr./Ms. Congeniality. A little smile can make a difference, especially when you’re dealing with people in the college (emphasis on the BC department). When people don’t seem to be accommodating, don’t lose heart! Don’t forget the magic words (“please” and “thank you”) when making transactions – it’s a general rule that you’ll find very useful in the department, the college – everywhere, in general.

Comm Res 180 - Project Planning
MASS COMMANDMENTS FOR COMMRES 1. Never, ever plagiarize. Always cite your sources properly. Do not claim others’ idea/s as yours. Mapa-isang salita, phrase, or buong sentence pa iyan, CITE! Sa CommRes, APA (American Psychological Association) ang format na madalas ginagamit, so acquaint yourself with this style. The professors are dead serious when it comes to punishing those who have committed this crime. No joking. 2. Your computer is your new best friend. Because you are now a CommRes major, expect frequent nights of intimate affairs with your laptop. Maging maingat sa mga mababagsik na virus na naglipana ngayon, mga virus na walang sinasanto kahit pa malapit ka nang matapos sa tina-type mo. Install a good anti-virus software and make sure it’s regularly updated. 3. ALWAYS prepare a backup of your files. Can’t emphasize this highly enough. Gaya nga ng sabi rin sa amin nung freshie kami, ito na ang panahon para magpaka-paranoid. Marami-rami na rin ang nabiktima ng instances kung saan nawawala na lang nang di inaasahan ang files for class requirements (e.g. nanakawan, nag-crash bigla ang laptop, na-virus ang USB). So you have nothing to lose—and everything to gain in case of emergency— when you duplicate—or even triplicate for more insurance—the files you need. Suggestions: Pwede mong i-upload sa iyong personal email ang nagawa mo na, or
have a separate flash drive just for your backups. 4. Research papers in major subjects are NOT the sort of which you can both start and finish overnight. If in high school overnight cramming could save your ass, adapting the same line of thinking and lifestyle especially on your majors may be tantamount to academic trainwreck. Ang sagot: time management. The earlier you get done with your requirements, the easier and more time for you to spot the errors you made in your research, thus improving the quality of your work. Huwag ding mahiyang magpa-consult sa prof kung gustong ma- improve ang paper. Because of this, it is really advisable that you finish your paper ahead of time, nang sa ganun makagawa pa kayo ng draft version na pwede n’yong ipakita muna sa prof to get his/her opinion. 5. Junk the notion that Mass Comm needs no hardcore maths. Actually, sa apat na undergrad programs sa CMC, CommRes lang ang may heavy math. Sa quantitative aspect ng CommRes, kailangang sundin ang iba’t ibang nakakalurkey na formulas, tables, and graphs sa ating stat subjects (hidden in the names “CommRes”). But don’t you worry kung hindi ka pinagpala sa number crunching. Unlike our algebra, mas makikita mo ang usefulness at relevance ng concepts na ‘to sa pag-build ng isang study.
Major Majors CommRes 101- Introduction to Communication Research Of all the CommRes subjects that you’re soon going to take, ito na siguro ang pinakaimportante sa lahat. You should never take this one for granted. Kaya better keep your eyes and your ears wide open for this subject. This is the first CommRes subject that you’re going to take - first theory, first data gathering technique, first research paper, at kung anu-ano pang firsts - so I suggest make the most out of it. Mind you, whatever you encounter here is just a sneak peek of what’s in store for you in the coming years. CommRes 110- Introduction to Qualitative Research in Communication You will eventually learn that in here in CommRes, we have a couple of research approaches, and this subject will take you deeper into one of them - qualitative research. If mahilig kayong mag-observe ng mga tao and how they communicate or mahilig kayo sa mga social phenomenons and how those came about, I’m sure this is the subject for you. You’ll get to understand people and how they communicate in a deeper sense. CommRes 115- Statistical Concepts for Communication Research The other research approach that I was referring to earlier is the quantitative approach. Kung ang bet niyo ay ang mathematics and surveys, then this is perfect. Here in this subject, the most important term is generalization. What you’re studying here is the general population. Ang main point here is that you’re after the pulse of the public. CommRes 120-Quantitative Analysis in Communication Research Akala niyo dahil nasa Maskom kayo ay nakatakas na kayo sa best friend nating si Math? Contrary to popular belief na wala raw Math sa Maskom, sa CommRes, we have to deal with tons of formulas and computations. Bring out your calculators, guys. You’ll surely need those. In here, you have to deal with numbers when analyzing data. Level-up sa pag-aaral about quantitative research. CommRes 130- Qualitative Analysis in Communication
Research So syempre, level up din ang pag-aaral nating ng qualitative research. Here, you’ll get to experience first-hand the various qualitative research methods. Malay niyo, you’ll get to experience ethnography in Boracay? How awesome is that! You’ll also get to know kung paano mag-analyze ng mga data, which is really important. CommRes 160 - Internship For the entire summer, you’ll get to experience what it’s like to work in an actual research firm, an advertising agency, or maybe an NGO. Dito niyo makikita what is in store for you after you graduate. You’ll get to have a sneak peek of the real world, so to speak. CommRes 165- Data Intrepretation and Reporting This is probably the ultimate CommRes subject out of all the CommRes subjects you guys have to take. Ito na ang sukatan kung may natutunan nga ba kayo sa lahat ng CommRes subjects na kinuha niyo beforehand. Don’t worry. Karamay niyo ang lahat ng blockmates niyo rito. You have to accomplish a research paper together. Test of friendship? Maybe. At the end of the day, for sure, you can confidently say na you’re ready for your last requirement bilang CommRes student - THESIS. CommRes 199- Research Design Just like in other courses, making one’s thesis requires two subjects. Here in this subject, you are given the chance to propose your thesis topic. Ito na ang simula ng nalalapit na pagtatapos ng buhay CommRes niyo. You can work in pairs or pwedeng solo flight ka lang. Dito niyo na magagamit lahat ng natutunan niyo sa loob ng ilang taong pag-aaral ng CommRes. This is your chance to make a research paper that will make the world go WOW. CommRes 200- Thesis Last stretch before finally saying hello to those sunflowers you have longed for four years! This is when you get to actualize your study - data gathering, analysis, and finally, writing the results of your study. The best part? When you finally get to read this phrase on your thesis draft - FOR BINDING.
Tools of the Trade (1) Digital recorder - for interviews and FGD’s (2) Computer/laptop- self- explanatory naman siguro ito? (3) Scientific calculator - for quanti res subjects (4) Extension cord- share-share sa saksakan ng laptop, share-share sa saya! (5) Internet – Hindi mo lang kailangan ng Internet dahil sa data na makukuha mo online. Kailangan mo rin ito lalo na kung magsesend ka ng files sa groupmates mo in the wee hours of the night.
film The Bachelor of Arts in Film (formerly Bachelor of Arts in Film and Audio-Visual Communication) is the freshest and youngest acad program in CMC, established in 1984. It’s the only degree program in the country that offers an actual four-year BA Film course. San ka pa?! It’s no wonder that the UP Film Institute is the only internationally-accredited academic institution in the country offering film courses for both undergraduate and graduate students. Paano ba naman, ang faculty nito’y hebigat—it’s made up of no less than the top-caliber film experts and notable names in the industry lang naman. At kung students at alumni lang naman ng UPFI ang pag-uusapan, aba, mauubos ‘tong buong papel sa paglilista ng mga awards at citations na natanggap nila mula sa mga prestihiyosong award-giving bodies here and abroad. AWAAAAAARD! At siyempre, bukod sa paghubog sa mga estudyante nito upang maging magaling (given na kasing magiging achiever ka), nais rin ng programang ito na makapagpanganak ng mga creative well-rounded, at socially aware na mga graduates na handang-handa itaguyod ang progreso ng national cinema. So worry not, coconut, you’re in the safest and greatest of hands. Welcome to the place where the real action starts—the College of Mass Communication.

Major Majors Film 100 Introduction to Film. True to its course description, this is the most basic of your courses. You may be asking, why the need for an intro when you LOVE film anyway, and you’ve watched every film there is? Well, you’re thinking wrong. You will discover more things about film than you can imagine. Whether you already know the film geniuses yet, or not, it’s still good to get acquainted with them and their works, the classics, and some of the films that have revolutionized cinema. Film 110 Basic Photography. So you’ve been taking photos with your digital camera or DSLR for quite a while now and think you’re quite good. But for now, you may keep them because you’ll be using a manual SLR and rolls of film to take your photos. Get to know your camera: its parts and how each works in creating the shot you want. Learn the techniques to better lighting and enter the darkroom and watch your photos come to life. Film 102 History of Philippine Cinema. Get acquainted with the pioneers of Philippine Cinema from as early as Nepomuceno, to the more celebrated Filipino filmmakers of the golden age, Brocka, Bernal, De Leon, and more. Some say Philippine Cinema have three golden ages, some say we have four. After taking this course, it’s up to you to decide. Film 131 Narrative Film. Filmmaking is storytelling. Know how to translate your story into film and master the language of film. They say films follow a formula. But there is a lot more to that. Be prepared to make your first film. Film 103 History of World Cinema. Hollywood is not the only film industry in the world. In this course, you’ll get to watch and study films from different parts of the world and understand how each national cinema is unique, as a product of a particular culture. You don’t have to worry about getting “Lost in Translation”, there are subtitles anyway. Film 151 Scriptwriting I. Know how to write your story. It’s not just about the dialogues. Learn how to write a scene by vividly describing how you want it to appear in shot. Scriptwriting is far from writing a short story or a novel. There is a format to follow and techniques to better tell your story. A tip: show, don’t tell. Film 132 Documentary Film. If in books there are fiction and non-fictional literature, in film, there is the narrative form and the documentary. Here, you’ll learn how to use the camera in telling the story as it happens. Film 153 Cinematography. What’s in a shot? Lots. You have to know what should and shouldn’t be in your frame. Do you use a full shot or a close up? In which angle do you take it? Learn all these and how to light the scene, then you’ll know how to make day to night and night to day. Film 155 Acting. So you want to work behind the camera, eh? Well that doesn’t mean you don’t have to learn Acting. You can’t dream of being a director if you don’t even know the difference between good and bad acting. This course will teach you just that or maybe change your mind in the career you want to pursue. Perhaps, you’ve been wanting to be in front of the camera all along. Film 156 Production Design. I bet you know that Titanic wasn’t shot in an actual ship. Because if it were, that’d be a huge waste-building an expensive ship and breaking it in two at the end. Learn the wonders of production design and use it to make a scene look more genuine and convincing, from the costumes, look of the scene, the set, up to the minor details of what painting to hang in a wall. Film 133 Experimental Film. Ever watch a film that is so weird
or out of this world and you just simply can’t put it? Or a film so disturbing you can’t see it through the credits? That’s what this course is about. Hopefully you can make out of these films and make them yourself. After learning the classics, it’s time to explore and experiment and break whatever rules you’ve learned. Learn how to use film, more than just telling a story. Film 157 Film Sound and Music Scoring. More than what you see on the screen, the music and the sound also tells the story. The music and sound can be a very useful tool in better storytelling and setting the mood for your film. Usually, without watching the whole film, you can tell what genre it belongs to by the score in it. This course will teach you how to better score your film with music and sound. And what equipment is best to use for crisp and clean sound. Film 154 Editing. So you’ve managed to get the shots and you think they’re great. It’s time to put the pieces together and make sense out of the dozens of footage you have. Here, you’ll meet some of the friends that’ll stick with you for life. Hello Premiere, After Effects, FCP and Avid! Film 158 Directing. Being a director means knowing every aspect of filmmaking. And more than knowing, you also have to be in control. You’re the captain and the ship, your film. This course will teach you how to combine the different aspects of film production into a good and cohesive film. Film 198 Internship It’s time to put everything you’ve learnt to the test in the industry of film. Apply as an apprentice and take part in a professional film production. This is your make or break chance, this offers a glimpse of your future after college. Make the most out of it! Film 159 Film Production Management. Making a film oftentimes require a budget before it can be realized. No matter how big or small of a budget you are working with, it is important to always be within the budget. This is where production management and financial skills are needed. Learn how to coordinate the different departments of the production aid the director in realizing the film within the budget and time planned. This probably the most tedious task and involves almost everything from getting a location, props, and sometimes, making everybody happy on set. Film 171 Film Theory and Criticism. Theories are not meant to make your nose bleed. This course is not meant to give you sleepless nights reading dozens of readings and pile of books. This is not meant to make your life harder. And this is not sarcasm. Because if you take this seriously, you’ll know exactly how you want your film to be. Film 199 Research in Film. So you already have an idea of what film you want to make? How did you come up with it? What does it mean? How is your film significant? These are just some of the questions you have to be prepared for when you propose a film production. This process involves writing your film while making sense out of it. You can’t just make a film just because. And before you can get the green light to shoot your film, you have to answer every question that the panel of film professors has about your film and prove that film is worth it. Film 200 Thesis. Finally, your film debut. By this time, you will be needing your hard-earned money (or your parents’, perhaps) to fund a full-blown film production. This serves as a culmination of your four-year journey in the institute, and everyone will only have the greatest expectation about your film. Make your dream film if you must or at least give it your best. And after this, you’ll realize you don’t need to be a film prodigy to be a filmmaker, all you need is genuine love for film.
Tools of the Trade (1) Camera- Kailangan mo ng camera na kaya kumuha ng video para sa film. (2) Computer - Kailangan mo nito pang-edit ng mga prods na ishoo-shoot mo. So siyempre, kailangan mo rin ng editing software. (3) Tripod – para steady mga shots mo, ‘di ba? (4) Baon – Kasi malayu-layo ang building natin sa sibilasiyon, k? (5) Pera - Ang film ay pumapangalawa sa pinakamagastos na kurso sa UP - Medicine lang tumalo satin!
Journalism Mabuhay sa mga bagong estudyante ng Peryodismo sa Kolehiyo ng Pangmadlang Komunikasyon! Oo, kailangan naka-Filipino ang kurso mo, ganun tayong mga Jern majors, e, kakaiba. Kung maigi mong binabantayan ang balita, alam mo nang isa pa rin ang Pilipinas sa mga pinaka-mapanganib na bansa na maging peryodista. So anong gagawin mo? SHIFT NA!
napakagandang malaman yun? Sabihin mo “oo.” Ang departamento natin ang pinakamatanda sa ating kolehiyo, itinatag noong 1965. At dahil gurang na ang departamento, alam na ng mga magiging guro mo ang mga dapat mong malaman ukol sa jern. Seryosohin mo sila kung ayaw mong manguya at madura. Biro lang, mababait naman sila. Wag makinig sa mga taong nagsasabing “Journ ka lang,” “Maskom ka lang.” Kalbaryo itong pinasok mo, ‘te, pero masayang kalbaryo. May ganun?
Chika lang. Huwag magpatinag sa mga ganitong balita, at ipagpatuloy pa rin ang tinahak mong kurso. Bukod sa magiging masaya ka dito, marami ka pang matututunan at matutulun- Pero di lang sulat-sulat dito, gan sa hinaharap, at hindi ba kuha mo? Marami pang inaasa-

han sa iyo dito, at tama naman yun, kering-keri naman natin ‘yan. Dito sa Peryodismo/Jern/Journalism, tuturuan kang intindihin na ang pagiging alagad ng midya ay di kasing-glamoroso na propesyon, taliwas sa nakikita natin sa mga palabas. Mahirap ang mag-trabaho sa midya, oo, pero isa rin naman ito sa mga pinaka-fulfilling na puwedeng magawa ng tao, ang maghatid ng impormasyon sa kanyang mga kababayan nang madagdagan ang kanilang mga kaalaman ukol sa iba’t ibang isyu. Kaya wag mag-atubiling karirin ang kursong ito. Muli, mabuhay sa iyo, estudyante ng Peryodismo!

Major Majors J100 - History of Journalism. Sinasabing you have to know the past to understand the present - ito ang rationale ng J100. Bago ka sumabak sa mundo ng headlines at deadlines, pag-aaralan mo muna kung paano ito nahubog. J101 - Introduction to Journalism. Heto na! Ito ang unang writing class mo sa journ. Dito itinuturo ang basics ng pagsusulat ng balita, kaya makinig mabuti kung ayaw mong mapagalitan ng bongga sa mga mas advanced na journ classes.
edit ng prof sa news stories mo? Puwes, ito na ang pagkakataong maghiganti sa ibang tao! Hahahaha! Gagawa din ng diyaryo (oo, buong diyaryo!) sa kursong ito. Stress Drilon, pero fun.
J102 - News Reporting. Ang 102 ay ang pinakaimportanteng major sa journ. Dito mo talaga matutunan kung paano maging peryodista - mula sa paghahanap hanggang sa pagsusulat ng iba’t-ibang klaseng balita. Prereq din ito sa halos lahat ng journ elective. Kapag bumagsak ka sa news reporting, huwag magulat kapag may nagsabi sayong mag-shift ka na.
J196 - Seminar. Ang seminar ay tulad ng box of chocolates - you never know what you’re going to get. Nagiiba ang 196 depende sa prof na nagtuturo. Kamakailan, ang karaniwang mga topic ay sportswriting, peace journalism, at reporting on women.
J110 - Journalism Ethics. Ika nga ng lola ni Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Dahil may power of the press, dapat may mga pamantayan din. Gusto mo mag-advanced reading? I-memorize na ang Code of Ethics na nakasabit sa tabi ng giant bulletin board sa may journ dept. J121 - The Newsroom. Dahil may assumption na marunong ka na magsulat kapag umabot ka sa kursong ito, ang main focus ng 121 ay ang pag-edit ng obra ng iba. Natrauma ka ba sa madugong pag-
Tools of the Trade (1) Digital recorder - essential for interviewing
J122 - Publication Design & Layout. Natuwa ka ba sa paggawa ng diyaryo sa 121? Kung oo, edi matutuwa ka din sa 122, kasi wala kang ibang gagawin kundi mag-layout ng diyaryo at iba pang uri ng print publication, tulad ng magazine at brochure.
J198 - Journalism Internship. Ito ang unang tikim mo ng tunay na mundo. Matapos ang mga writing at editing classes mo, oras nang i-apply ang theory into practice. 150 hours of fun, fun, fun (promise, enjoy siya, kaya ‘wag matakot!) J199 - Research in Journalism. Pre-thesis, kung kailan magsusubmit ka ng unang tatlong chapter ng thesis mo. Maaaring investigative o research ang topic ng thesis. J200 - Thesis. After four years (sana four lang, ano?) of hard work, ito na ang huling hirit! Thesis it!
