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."
The Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSDS) Program is dedicated to providing a comprehensive education in basic human communication processes and in the prevention, assessment, and treatment of communication disorders across the lifespan.
At the undergraduate level, the CSDS program builds on the university’s liberal arts education to provide comprehensive pre-professional academic and observation experiences. At the graduate level, the program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for entry level practice in speech-language pathology by integrating academic knowledge, ethical principles and clinical experiences. Masters’ graduates will be prepared to earn the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and licenses from the Virginia Board of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology and the Virginia Department of Education.
The program is further committed to helping students develop an understanding of evidence-based practice and research methodology so they can apply research findings to plan appropriate interventions for their clients and to conduct research.
Longwood University has been grateful to the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) for its financial support for starting the DLVE-SLP program and during its first three cohorts. We're delighted that we've been able to support 21 students who have or will complete this program.
Unfortunately, as VDOE funding is diminishing, Longwood University regrets that it can not participate in future cohorts. As a result, James Madison University will be the singular admitting institution for the DLVE-SLP part-time online master's degree in speech-language pathology. Longwood will maintain its support for the students currently enrolled in Longwood's program through their graduation. Faculty from Longwood, as well as from the other partner universities, Hampton University and the University of Virginia, will continue to have opportunities to teach courses for the DLVE-SLP program.
For course descriptions and requirements please refer to the current Graduate Catalog for the College of Education & Human Services.
The CSDS Graduate Program will periodically request graduates and employers of graduates to complete the surveys at this link. Thank you.
