The Jackson School is hosting a PhD Panel event tomorrow, January 10, from 1 – 2 p.m. in Thomson 317.
We will have 4 current PhD students speak as panelists to answer questions and share their experience. While our panelists are JSIS students, this event is open to everyone and is intended to discuss PhD programs and preparation in general terms.
In addition to answering questions, panelists will discuss:
· Motivation to pursue a PhD
· Searching for and evaluating PhD programs
· Preparing for a program
· Research experience and writing a dissertation
· Challenges for PhD students
· General advice
