CSD Graduate School Panel

Thursday, March 29

Each Spring, Communication Career Services hosts a graduate school panel for Communication Sciences & Disorders majors interested in learning more about graduate school applications, personal statement writing, and requesting recommendation letters from faculty. This event is held in conjunction with CSD department faculty and graduate students and the Moody Writing Support Program. The event will begin with a short "Graduate School 101" presentation, followed by audience questions to the panel.

This year's panelists are:

  • Dr. Courtney Byrd, Ph.D. - Associate Professor, Communication Sciences and Disorders
  • Mandy Aguirre - Student Writing Coach, Moody Writing Support Program
  • Carla Wright - Graduate Clinician, UT Speech and Hearing Center
  • Shannon Goodwin - Graduate Student, Speech Language Pathology

While many CSD students opt to pursue graduate studies, many undergraduate alumni are pursuing successful careers in other areas. Check out the CSD: Non-Professional Track Handout for more information.
