Catch up with latest Communications issues and topics with Moody Mini Series

Curious about the latest from inside The New York Times newsroom?

Need some tips on successfully working virtually?

And what’s the latest on LGBTQ+ Perspectives in Advertising and PR?

These topics and more are part of the Moody Mini Series, a series of 9 interviews and discussions about communication-related topics.

Organized by Moody College of Communication at UT, the series just concluded for the summer, but will resume in the fall.

All of the episodes for the first 9 sessions are available at the links below.

“The Moody Mini Series came about as a way to serve and engage with our alumni and supporters across the globe,” said Virginia Anderson,  Associate Director of Donor, Alumni and Parent Initiatives

All of the series can be watched on Moody’s YouTube channel.

The first week of July an email will go out inviting Moody alumni and friends to go back and watch/re-watch the entire summer series on Moody’s YouTube Channel. The links to each video will also be provided in that email.
