Study Psychology

Prepare for a career that focuses on human or health services. As our faculty and students study human behavior and mental processes, they improve the health and well-being of people across North Carolina and beyond. Psychologists provide health services in clinics, hospitals, schools or in the private sector. In diverse settings, psychologists provide training, evaluation and research for industry, business, nonprofit and government organizations.

Undergraduate study of psychology can lead you into such fields as counseling, social work, education, management, human relations or the legal system. And the foundation you’ll build with an undergraduate degree will set you up to succeed in such graduate areas of study as clinical or health psychology, school psychology, or industrial and organizational psychology. 


Psychology has been taught at NC State since 1915.
