The Reap College of Education and Human Development is centered in the helping professions.
We explore the workings of the human mind and prepare students to meet the cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal needs of others across the life span.
We educate students to evaluate, apply, and produce research, which is the basis of best practice in professions and organizations.
We challenge our faculty and students to be leaders who are:
Communication Sciences and Disorders: At the bachelor's and master's levels, we educate students to understand the importance of communication as the basis for all human relationships and prepare them to be professionals who work with individuals with communication delays, differences, and disorders across the life span.
Counseling: At the master's level, we train ethical and caring decision-makers who attend to the varied developmental needs of individuals in K-12 and agency settings.
Human Development: At the doctoral level, we train leaders and researchers to approach problems in human development from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Psychology: At the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, we train students to become scientists who utilize empirical thinking to understand and heal people at every stage of their development.
Education: At the bachelor's level, we prepare teachers to make a significant, positive, and educational impact on the lives of N-12 learners. At the master's level, we prepare educational leaders to become scholarly practitioners and to be proactive leaders of change with local and school communities.
Special Education: At the bachelor's and master's levels, we train professionals to educate and advocate for individuals in N-12 settings who demonstrate a continuum of special learning needs.
