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.

Department Mission

The mission of the Psychology Department orients students to the various fields of human activities that require application of psychological knowledge. The Psychology Department is responsible for delivering the curriculum that will lead to a B.A. in Psychology, as well as providing support courses for General Education for non-majors. This is accomplished through appropriate course work, laboratory sessions, research projects, and empirical experiences. In addition, the program seeks to instill core values of commitment, integrity, and dedication in teaching, research, and community service.

Program Purpose and Focus

The goals of the B.A. in 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.
