The research-oriented Master of Science in Human Development and Family Sciences programs require a thesis and dissertation, respectively, and prepare students for careers as university faculty, full-time researchers, medical school faculty, and human service providers. Applicants should contact the department concerning admissions requirements, programs of study, and financial assistance www.depts.ttu.edu/hs/hdfs/index.php. Admission to a graduate degree program requires the recommendation of the department and the Graduate School .

Students in the HDFS master’s program take two theories courses (Theories of Human Development and Family Theories), research methods, introduction to statistics, and a colloquium in HDFS. All students are required to complete a research-based thesis and at least 6 hours of thesis research. Beyond these requirements, the remainder of the hours in the program (15 of 37) are electives allowing students to tailor the program to their own needs and interests.
