After earning a bachelor’s degree in Spanish, Stephanie Jackson knew she wanted to pursue a master’s degree. With a lifelong love of language and a keen interest in understanding the process by which humans acquire language, the Communication Sciences and Disorders (COSD) program at Radford University was a perfect fit.
As a resident of Southwest Virginia, Jackson knew of the university and had heard about the prestigious COSD program. One visit to campus convinced her Radford University was the right place to complete her education.
“After touring the Radford University Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic (RUSLHC), and meeting the faculty within the COSD department, I knew Radford was the place for me to complete my master’s degree,” she says. “The faculty really made me feel like a priority. They provided me with wonderful information about the program, as well as their research interests. I knew that they were the type of mentors, supervisors, and professors that I wanted to guide me and help create my career as a speech-language pathologist.”
