Master's in Human Development and Family Science
Graduate study in HDFS emphasizes the integration of theory, research and application to address key issues in risk and resilience. Our master's degree in Development and Family Science focuses on the integration of theory and research in human development and family science, research methods, and statistics. Students complete a thesis and get practical research experience.
Graduate students work with their advisers and advisory committees to develop flexible yet rigorous programs that meet degree requirements and professional competencies in the area of the specialization. Graduate programs in HDFS are central to departmental research. Faculty and students engage in the integration of theory and research to advance the development and application of knowledge to reduce risk and enhance resilience for individuals and families across cultures and generations.
OSU-Tulsa HDFS students may choose to participate in research through the OSU Center for Family Resilience, located on our downtown Tulsa campus.
