Elizabeth City State University is home of the only four-year aviation science degree program in North Carolina. Students are capable of pursuing careers that deal with air traffic control, flight education, computer science, avionics, electronics, public administration, and aviation management. Elizabeth City State University recently expanded its academics by offering a pharmacy program. The education and psychology school is also expanding by offering new courses students can take along with a new building.
Although the University is expanding, there are not enough teachers to meet the needs of the students, especially when some students require more help than others. There are also not enough core classes offered during the academic school year to help students graduate on time, due to the lack of professors. Throughout the campus, the professors that are available are different and unique, challenging students to think critically, work together, and grow mentally, physically, and emotionally. They provide challenging curriculums, and the workload is quite reasonable.
