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 capital, Raleigh, and about two hours from the Atlantic Ocean and the Outer Banks. The Psychology department is located in Rawl building on the main campus. We have 43 faculty members involved in the undergraduate major and four graduate programs. We have over 600 undergraduate students majoring in psychology and approximately 60 graduate students.
We admit students into the Ph.D. program in Health Psychology, as well as the M.A. program in School Psychology and the M.A. program in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. The Ph.D. program admitted its first class in the fall of 2007 and has three concentrations: Clinical Health, Occupational Health, and Pediatric School Psychology. Our graduate programs are based on the scientist-practitioner model, and include a focus on providing clinical, school, and I/O psychologists with research skills, as well as applied skills to work 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 undergraduates and graduate students. You can explore the research interests of our faculty members on the faculty webpage.
We encourage you to explore our website, to read our newsletter, to visit the campus, and to consider making ECU your academic home.
