‘The Bachelor’: What Is Cassie Randolph Going To School For And When Is She Done?

Cassie Randolph was the final rose winner of Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor. After a turbulent finale, the two seem to be on steady ground these days and happily in love. 

While Underwood and Randolph have been distinctively taking their relationship at a slow pace, Randolph is heavily focused on her schooling and career right now.

On her Instagram stories, she recently did a Q & A with fans, and several questions about Randolph’s studies popped up. 

What Cassie Randolph is studying in grad school

Randolph is attending the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She’s studying to become a speech-language pathologist, which is a position that works to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults, according to the ASHA website that Randolph shared in her stories.   

One fan asked Randolph when she’s done with grad school. 

“I graduate May, 2021 from @uweauclaire speech-language pathology master’s program. It’s 3 years of clinicals & classes. 

On my way home from Eau-Claire, WI right now! Was a long week of exams and claas but also a fun one because I have the best classmates and the professors are wonderful:)” she responded.

Another Randolph fan asked her what her career goals are once she finishes school.    

“So many questions about speech and school and career! I love it!” she wrote. “So, this is one I am not entirely sure about yet. So many options to explore before I decide!

My mom and my aunt are also pursuing speech pathology with me- they’re in the post-bacc program at @uweauclaire actually! Ideally we all want to do something together:)

I have always worked with kids, but I’m really excited to work with adults too so we will see what ends up happening!

That’s one thing I love about speech- there are so many different avenues you can take. You can help treat traumatic brain injuries, accent reduction, strokes, voice therapy, learning disorders, feeding or swallowing difficulties, anything to do with communication… so many options, really.” 

Cassie Randolph’s Christian faith helps to inform her career path.

Sometimes it can be hard for me to find my words (as you all have seen haha)… it’s so easy for me to over-analyze and get in my own head, especially when my feelings are overwhelming or when big things are happening so quickly. So, here goes my attempt to put the past 6 months into words Stepping out of the limo on night one, I had no idea what was in store for me. The saying “God always has bigger plans in mind” has never felt more real to me than it does now. I’m honestly holding back tears as I write this, trying not to get too sentimental as all the memories and emotions flood over me while I reflect on this whole experience. I am unbelievably grateful for every single relationship that was formed with 29 amazing women, Colton and all the crew involved. It was a truly unique adventure that I got the extraordinary opportunity to experience. Everyone who has been beside me throughout these past 6 months (during filming and post), has helped me grow in ways that I couldn’t ever have imagined. I’ve learned things about myself, relationships, and life in general, that I would never have known otherwise. Thinking back to before I was cast on The Bachelor S23, I get chills realizing just how crazy it is that ONE THING has the potential to change life SO MUCH. ♥️ This past week, I took a much-needed break from my social media. I was allowing the opinions of others, and their sometimes cruel speculations, really get to me. That brings me to perhaps the truest, most impactful thing that this experience has taught me: to stay true to myself. Being real is something we ALL owe to ourselves. Regardless of the outcome, that is the one thing we can do to guarantee no regrets… to make the best decision we can in the moment. So cheers, my friends (and trolls) to The Bachelor S23 finale… may we all live and learn, be humble, and most of all, forever remain open to learning. Thank you for the opportunity to share with you all a glimpse into some of the most pivotal moments of my life. So far :) #thebachelor

Before Randolph was on The Bachelor, she was on a Chrisitan reality show called Young Once. On the show, Randolph spoke about how she relies on her religion to help her make the right career decisions. 

“Along the way, there are so many cool opportunities that become available. I don’t want to be close-minded to anything else,” she said. “It’s hard for me to make really big decisions because I don’t know if it’s what I want or if it’s not. That’s why my brain is so scattered. If I want one thing from God, it’s to make my path clearer to me. Or make me content in not being clear.”
