About Elizabeth City State University
On March 3, 1891, Hugh Cale, an African-American representative in the N.C. General Assembly from Pasquotank County, sponsored House Bill 383, which established a normal (teaching) school for “teaching and training teachers of the colored race to teach in the common schools of North Carolina.” The bill passed, and the origin of Elizabeth City State University was born.
Currently, ECSU offers 24 baccalaureate degree programs through its ten departments in arts and sciences, selected professional and pre-professional areas and, four master’s degree programs in Biology, Elementary Education, Mathematics, and School Administration. As of May 2017, undergraduate and/or graduate degrees have been conferred upon more than 20,000 students.
