What do our students say?
During the search to find a perfect university to pursue my speech-language pathology career, it was evident that Longwood University always stood out to me. Longwood was my first choice for graduate school because it offered me things that I felt no other program could. Longwood's CSD graduate program is a tight knit community where class sizes are very small and the faculty abide by an "open door" policy. The faculty sincerely want the students to succeed and are willing to go above and beyond their job descriptions to accommodate each graduate student. I will be so proud to hang my Masters of Science diploma up for others to see and know that I graduated from Longwood University's CSD graduate program.

I had the privilege of attending the Communication Science and Disorders master’s program at Longwood University and found the courses to be excellent. The professors were extremely supportive and always went the extra mile to ensure that the students understood the material. The CSDS clinical experiences provided me with the foundation to feel confident in the work place. I completed the program in May of 2014 and am happy with decision to pursue my CSDS degree at Longwood University. Overall, I was very pleased with my education and commend the professors at Longwood for helping me become a competent and efficient Speech-Language Pathologist.

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.

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.
