The program uniquely prepares professionals for careers in community and social services to support and improve the lives of people in business and the community in settings such as mental health facilities, government, business & industry, and organizational contexts. 


Curriculum will address a practitioner-wellness and human services model. Because the program is twofold—for preparing careers in social services and for professional counseling—the program adopts an experiential philosophy to develop personal awareness and creativity from a bio-psycho-social perspective across the lifespan. As such, a student’s effectiveness becomes a product, in part, of his or her creativity, personal, and cultural awareness. It is expected that students not only desire, but intend to pursue the inspection of their own personal identity, growth, and development—both inside and outside the classroom—as an integral part of their graduate studies at OKCU.
