Finish your child and family services degree in Tulsa

Advance your career working with children, families and vulnerable populations through OSU's bachelor's degree in human development and family science: child and family services. You'll build knowledge in individual development, family dynamics, policy, management and professional skills and gain hands-on experience that will help you stand out in the workplace.

Child and family services at OSU-Tulsa is a degree completion program for transfer and returning adult students.

The OSU-Tulsa Difference

When you earn your OSU degree in Tulsa, you’ll be surrounded by a supportive campus community and student services designed specifically for transfer and working adult students. Classes are available one evening a week at our downtown campus, and some courses are available online or in a hybrid format.


Tulsa is home to multiple agencies and organizations who serve families, children and vulnerable populations. This program's integrated internship experience helps you apply the knowledge learned in the classroom in a professional setting. Internships have been completed in Tulsa-area agencies including the YMCA, CASA for Kids and Youth Services of Tulsa.


Best of all, you will be learning alongside others like you with a passion for making a difference. You'll be able to share experiences and learn from each other as you build your professional skills and qualifications. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in research focused on enhancing individual, family, and community well-being through the Center for Family Resilience, Center for Research on Childhood Adversity, or Institute for Building Early Relationships.
