Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

Online Courses
There are at least two to three courses offered online within every program at Elizabeth City State University. Through Blackboard, there are ways to set up communication with other students by introducing yourself to the class. Assignments are usually required once a week, along with a quiz on the week's reading material, followed by a test the following week. Every assignment and test is submitted through Blackboard; teachers do not allow assignments to be emailed. The professor-student relationship within online classes is not established completely unless the student needs to physically see the professor.
