Graduate Program

Lisa Kinton, M.A., CCC-SLP, Instructional Specialist, Chesterfield County Public Schools had this to say about our graduate students and program:

"I have been extremely impressed with the skills of every Longwood graduate who has joined our staff.  Longwood's program is doing a great job of preparing SLPs for services in the public schools."

What do our students say?

As a school-based speech-language pathologist, I have to say that the program at Longwood did a great job of preparing school SLPs. The program is well aligned with the direction the Virginia Department of Education is going.

"Longwood University's CSDS Graduate Program has truly been a blessing in my life. There is no doubt in my mind that this opportunity will lay a firm foundation for my career path in Speech Language Pathology. With such a small size, the program has allowed for incredible support and individual attention to its student clinicians. The staff is one of a kind, and challenges me to achieve more than I ever thought I could. I am so thankful to be a graduate student here at Longwood University."

Renee Crutchfield, M.S. 2011

 

Longwood's Master program for Communication Sciences and Disorders challenged me to think critically and outside the box in order to provide the best possible evaluations and treatments of the various communication disorders that occur in people from birth to death. As I am now a Speech-Language Pathologist in an acute care hospital that also has an outpatient speech-language pathology department, I am faced with various swallowing and communication disorders in stroke patients, and developmental disorders in children. I feel very confident, competent and able to provide the absolute best possible service to my patients.
