College of Health and Human Sciences Department of Psychology

Welcome to the Department of Psychology, in the College of Health and Human Sciences at North Carolina A&T State University.

The goals of the faculty in the Department of Psychology are to introduce students to the ideas and concepts relevant to this discipline, encourage interdisciplinary learning, prepare students for study in graduate schools, prepare students for entry-level jobs requiring knowledge in psychology, and train students to conduct both basic and applied research. These goals are reached through quality classroom instruction, departmental colloquia, departmental student organizations, internship opportunities through independent study, and individualized research projects.

To function as a professional psychologist, it is necessary to complete graduate training in the discipline. As such, many of our graduates go on to pursue advanced degrees. However, the baccalaureate degree can lead to a career and job opportunities in child care, human and social services, human resources, military services, law enforcement, and mental health services, just to name a few.

In general, the Department of Psychology serves the University by offering the undergraduate major in psychology, and by providing services courses for other departments. In addition, the Department prepares students for graduate study in psychology and associated fields, and provides students with skills related to employment at the baccalaureate level.
