Master's in Applied Human Services

A group of faculty and students discuss research.

Take your career in human services to the next level with a flexible master's degree built around your career goals and interests. Our Master of Science in Human Development and Family Sciences: Applied Human Services is for professionals interested in management or leadership roles at nonprofits, community health centers, social service organizations and government agencies.

Human development and family sciences provides interdisciplinary knowledge and skills focused on individuals and families, considering them in the context of the systems in which they live. Our program examines the whole lifespan—prenatal development to old age. In our education and research, the HDFS program emphasizes prevention efforts to help individuals and families reach their full potential.

OSU-Tulsa HDFS students may choose to participate in research through the OSU Center for Family Resilience, located on our downtown Tulsa campus.
