Welcome to the Department of Psychology at East Carolina University!
East Carolina University is located in Greenville, North Carolina, a university town of 70,000. We are just one hour east of the state capital, Raleigh, and under two hour from the Atlantic Ocean and the Outer Banks. The Department of Psychology is located in the Rawl building on the main campus. We have 43 faculty members involved in the undergraduate major and five graduate programs. We have over 600 undergraduate students majoring or minoring in psychology and approximately 70 graduate students.
We admit students to the PhD program in Health Psychology, as well as our MA programs in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and our MA/CAS program in School Psychology. The PhD program admitted its first class in 2007 and has three concentration areas: Clinical Health Psychology, Occupational Health Psychology, and Pediatric School Psychology. Our graduate programs are based on the scientist-practitioner model, and include a focus on providing clinical, organizational, and school psychologists with both the research skills and the applied skills to be successful in health care settings, schools, and businesses. We have practicum and internship sites in a variety of local and regional settings.
We have a variety of research opportunities, ranging from neuroscience laboratory studies to clinical work with heart and cancer patients, for both undergraduate and graduate students. You can explore the research interest of our faculty members on the faculty webpages.
We encourage you to explore our website, to read our newsletter, to visit the campus, and consider making the Department of Psychology at ECU you academic home. Go Pirates!
