Human Sciences, Ph.D.
OSU offers Ph.D. degree programs in Human Sciences with an option in Human Development and Family Science at OSU-Tulsa. Two routes are available: a 60-hour program for MS graduates and a 90-hour program for BS graduates.
The Ph.D. in Human Sciences with specialization in human development and family science (HDFS) is a research doctoral program designed to promote breadth, depth and integration of knowledge in HDFS through research collaborations. Doctoral students collaborate with faculty and other graduate students on research projects which integrate the theoretical and empirical knowledge base in HDFS and investigate key processes associated with risk and resilience. Upon graduation, doctoral students have the knowledge and experience to develop into leading scholars able to conduct high quality basic and applied research, to provide relevant instruction, develop effective interventions, and contribute to the development of informed public policy that reduces risk and enhances resilience within individuals and among families across cultures and generations.
