graduate students


Welcome to your home page for your graduate studies in Human Relations! On this page, we hope you will find all the resources needed to guide you through the program.  We have included the program planner as a pdf document which you can download and also, in online format. 

Below you will also find links to various sections that will take you directly to sections of the program planner, and to needed forms and instructions for the forms. We have also posted frequently asked questions for Advising, Enrollment, and Admission to Candidacy and Graduation.

The Master’s Human Relations is a 36 hour degree.  The non-thesis option, available in Norman, Tulsa, and Advanced Programs, requires 4 core courses (12 credit hours), and 6 credit hour internship, 18 hours of electives, and a comprehensive exam.  The thesis option, available in Norman and Tulsa, requires the same 4 core courses, electives, and a thesis instead of an internship and comprehensive exam. 

Please make sure that you read the program planner, and re-read as needed, so that you understand all of the policies regarding your degree plan.

Feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance, and with suggestions about how to make this page more useful to you.
