About

The James Madison University's master's degree program in Speech-Language Pathology - Online is designed to provide a broad spectrum of academic and practicum experiences necessary for the education of specialists who deal with disorders of human communication and swallowing. 

Overview

Clinical practical experiences are available in a wide range of professional settings including the JMU Applied Laboratory, various hospital and rehabilitation programs, and the public schools. The academic and clinical components of the Speech-Language Pathology - Online offered by the James Madison University are consistent with the requirements for certification in speech-language pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and for health and education licensure in speech-language pathology by the commonwealth of Virginia. 

Distance Learning in Virginia Educating Speech-Language Pathologists (DLVE-SLP) was originally a multi-university collaborative funded by the Virginia Department of Education to help address the shortage of school SLPs in the state of Virginia.

Although many of the requirements are completed in an online mode, interested individuals should be aware that there are some on-campus requirements, typically scheduled during summer months.
