When you read the title of this course, you may tend to put all your emphasis on the word “communication.” That would lead to a misunderstanding about what the course is about. The study of Organizational Communication puts just as much emphasis on the word “organizational.” This is because OC is about everything related to organizations and because everything is also connected with communication. While courses in public speaking, interpersonal communication, or group dynamics look at communication on the ground where human beings relate to one another in specific situations, OC soars above and looks down at the organization and its environment to see not only how organizations communicate, but also how communication itself shapes organizations.
