Rehabilitation, Human Resources and Communication Disorders

Welcome to the Department of Rehabilitation, Human Resources and Communication Disorders at the University of Arkansas. The department comprises six independent academic programs that among them offer 14 bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degree programs. We offer the majority of our programs in Fayetteville, although we have a large and growing online presence.

Michael Hevel, Ph.D.Our programs serve more than 900 students each academic year, and these learners find commonalities in coursework and engagement in areas such as professionalism, integrity, service to others, and commitment to lifelong learning. With more than 35 full-time faculty members — in addition to some leading practitioners who lend their talents as adjunct faculty — engaged in teaching and scholarship, you will find this to be a vibrant and eclectic academic environment.

Our department is dedicated to advancing knowledge, empowering communities, and preparing highly qualified diverse professionals in health and education who are committed to improving people's lives through practice, scholarship, and leadership. Please take some time to explore our programs, courses, services and faculty members. We look forward to hearing from you!
