The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey


Liberal Arts College in New Jersey Provides Exceptional Educational Experiences

The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey (Stockton) is a selective, midsized, highly-ranked public liberal arts college in southern New Jersey, with programs in business, liberal arts, humanities, health sciences, education, and social, behavioral, and natural sciences. Students enjoy small class sizes, modern facilities, exceptional educational experiences, an environmentally friendly campus, a great location, and reasonable tuition.

Stockton enrolls more than 7,000 students from New Jersey and the surrounding Mid-Atlantic states.

One of the Nation's Best Public Colleges

Stockton was highly ranked among the nation's top public colleges and universities in the 2010 survey of "America's Best Colleges." It also was ranked by "U.S. News and World Report" in 2010 as one of the best universities/master's programs in the north.

Degree Programs with Personalized Options

The college offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in the arts and humanities; business; professional studies; and social, behavioral, and natural sciences. Popular majors include business administration and management, criminal justice, environmental and marine sciences, and psychology.

Stockton's flexible curriculum allows students to prepare for professional careers in dentistry, law, medicine, and veterinary medicine, while pursuing a traditional major.

The college's academic programs are structured around a preceptorial system. This allows students to work on a personalized basis with an assigned faculty-staff preceptor (adviser) on evaluating and planning individual courses of study and career alternatives.

Freshman Seminar and First Year Experience

Stockton requires all first-semester freshmen to take part in the Freshman Seminar and First Year Experience, an academic introduction to the life of the mind.

The program brings students together in an intellectual and social community through interlocking events and programs designed to span the academic, co-curricular, and informational aspects of the educational experience.

Pre-Professional, Professional, and Dual-Degree Programs

The college offers pre-professional degree programs in occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, and podiatry, with the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy and the Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees completed at Stockton.

Stockton has accelerated 7-year, dual-degree articulation agreements with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (which includes the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the New Jersey Medical School, the School of Osteopathic Medicine, and the New Jersey Dental School); the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine; the New York State College of Optometry; and the Rutgers School of Pharmacy.

Stockton also has an articulation program with Cornell University for veterinary medicine, and 5-year, dual-degree programs with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Rutgers University for students interested in engineering.

Students Work Closely With Faculty

Stockton's 265 full-time and 80 part-time faculty members represent highly diverse academic, training, and social backgrounds, with 95 percent holding the highest degree in their field. Small class sizes and individual research opportunities afford students opportunities to work closely with faculty members.

Among Stockton's distinguished faculty are Pulitzer Prize winners, Guggenheim Fellowship winners, and world-renowned experts in Holocaust studies, psychology, and physics.

Campus Living and Activities

The campus' setting, tucked inside the Pinelands National Reserve, provides an ideal natural environment for a wide range of outdoor activities including sailing, canoeing, jogging, hiking, and fishing, with Jersey Shore beaches mere minutes away.

More than 130 student clubs and organizations at Stockton support the academic, professional, social, religious, community, political, and personal interests of students.

A performing arts center offers cultural events, exhibits, concerts, lectures, student plays, and other entertainment. The college also has 21 national fraternities and sororities.

Variety of Sports and Recreation Choices

Students, faculty, and staff members join together in an intramural and club sports program that includes aikido, crew, flag football, golf, ice hockey, soccer, softball, street hockey, swimming, and volleyball.

At the intercollegiate level, Stockton fields NCAA Division III teams in men's baseball, basketball, lacrosse, and soccer; women's basketball, crew, field hockey, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball; and men's and women's cross country and track and field.

A new, multi-purpose sports and recreation center offers fitness facilities, racquetball courts, weight rooms, a gymnasium, and outdoor recreational facilities.

Internships and Off-Campus Programs

Internships, research projects, and field studies are key features of most degree programs at Stockton. Study abroad, Semester at Sea, and a 4-year independent study with the One-on-One Connect mentor/scholar program are available.

The Washington, D.C. Internship Program enables students to gain professional work experience in the nation's capital. Stockton sends more students to this program than any other college or university outside the Washington, D.C. area.

Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid

Tuition costs, room and board fees, and other applicable charges vary for in-state and out-of-state students. Needs-based and merit-based financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study.

Stockton offers aggressive and generous scholarship opportunities for academically talented freshman and transfer students based on standardized test scores, grade point average, high school class rank, and college level performance.

Natural Setting Near City and Sand

Stockton's environmentally friendly campus in Pomona, N.J., has a rural, park-like feel, yet is close to a variety of cultural and recreational activities, with nearby shopping and dining.

Nestled on 1,600 acres in the pristine Pinelands National Reserve, just 12 miles from Atlantic City, the campus is 20 minutes from New Jersey shore beaches, an hour's drive from Philadelphia, and 2 hours from New York City.
