North Carolina A&T State University to Offer a New Master’s Degree in Health Psychology

North Carolina A&T State Unversity, the historically Black educational institution in Greensboro, has announced that it will offer a new master’s degree program in health psychology, through the department of psychology of the College of Health and Human Sciences.

The degree is a two-year program designed to provide the foundational knowledge and skills for students to work in the health psychology field. The first students are expected to enroll in the program during the Fall 2021 semester. The new degree program will have an initial cohort of about 15 students. Current plans call for an enrollment of 35 to 45 students over the next few years.

George Robinson, chair of the department of psychology at the university, stated that “the STEM-oriented degree will make us more competitive in seeking federal and other research funding. Additionally, the research and internship opportunities already offered to undergraduate students will now be at a higher level, with graduate students in the psychology department.”

The university believes that many students who complete the new master’s degree program will enter the workforce to hold positions such as health program director, health research associate, behavioral health data analyst, neuropsychology technician, community health educator, and community college professor.
