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:
- Ethical, just, and moral persons
- Creative and critical thinkers
- Understanding of and responsive to human and cultural diversity
- Technologically competent
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. Our program is accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
We prepare teachers to make a significant, positive, and educational impact on the lives of PK-12 learners. Our programs offer diverse field placement opportunities in various educational settings, so graduates can apply theory to practice. We also offer two five-year programs that culminate in additional certification at the master’s level. Our programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), having met the NCATE (National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education) standards.
We train students to become scientists who utilize empirical thinking to understand and heal people at every stage of their development. An undergraduate degree in Psychology prepares students for various career options and is essential preparation for advanced degrees in Psychology. Students also have the option to select a dual major in Psychology and Criminal Justice.
