Nancy Karlin has been at UNC for 23 years and was voted the Best Professor of the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences.

Nancy Karlin, a professor at UNC for 23 years, represents the best when it comes to the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences.

She specializes in experimental and social psychology. She was born in North Platte, Neb., and is the only girl among four children.

Karlin studied at Evangel University in Missouri, earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She went on to attain a master’s degree in general psychology at Fort Hays University in Kansas, then a Ph.D. in experimental psychology with an emphasis on social psychology from Colorado State University.

Other than teaching as a grad student, UNC is the only school at which Karlin has instructed students in courses.

“I didn’t originally intend to (teach), Karlin said. “I was going to go into a private practice for psychology. They offered teaching internships at my grad school, and I realized how much I loved day-to-day interactions with students.”

While teaching may not have been in Karlin’s original plan, she has faced the challenge of molding young minds and has done exceptionally well, being recognized as one of the best professors that UNC has to offer.
