2019 Ospreys Give was Great, but CLICK HERE to Support Ospreys Give 2020!
School of General Studies


One Vision. One Mission. Students First.

Gifts of every size move the University forward. 


The Holocaust Resource Center, First-Year Studies, Freshmen Seminar, Honors Program, Service Learning, Tutoring Center and Murphy Writing initiatives are just a few of the many educational opportunities offered to students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community by the School of General Studies.


Support students of all ages, backgrounds and interests on their quest for knowledge by helping the General Studies cultivate, develop and promote new programs for the eclectic learner. The following priorities will be supported through Ospreys Give 2019:


  • MAHG & Genocide Prevention Certificate Program — Founded in 1998, Stockton’s Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies (MAHG) program was the first program of its kind in the country. The curriculum provides outstanding preparation for those who plan to pursue a doctoral degree in the future, teachers, human rights professionals, museum curators and others interested in the study of genocide. Furthermore, the online Genocide Prevention Certificate (GPC) is a new program developed with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation to meet the need for extended specialized training among professionals in government, military, business sector and non-governmental organizations around the world.


  • Program Support — Under the Dean’s guidance, this fund allocates to areas of priority and need within the School of General Studies.


  • Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center — The Center's mission is to commemorate the Holocaust and develop sensitivity and understanding by combating antisemitism, racism, hatred and oppression as well as to memorialize the victims of the Holocaust and pay tribute to the survivors, liberators, and eyewitnesses. Its focus is to foster academic research, serve as a repository for Holocaust materials, participate in educating future generations by sponsoring awareness programs and exhibits; and providing workshops and seminars to train those teaching the Holocaust.


  • Scholarships — The School of General Studies offers scholarships to deserving students who are focused on an interdisciplinary course of study that meets their needs and interests.


  • Service-Learning and Civic Engagement — Stockton’s Office of Service-Learning offers a number of courses that allow students to interact with local communities and Atlantic City while teaching engagement and leadership skills. This Office provides students the opportunity to make a difference, build community relationships, become engaged citizens and experience the power of collaboration.


  • Tutoring Center — Gifts support the Tutoring Center, which is comprised of two areas for Writing and Math. Both centers are staffed by undergraduate peer tutors recruited from the University. The Tutoring Center serves as an extension of the classroom experiences, supporting the efforts of faculty. Its core mission is the improvement of student performance across Stockton's curriculum.

Who We Are

The School of General Studies oversees Stockton University’s curriculum "commons," the place where students and faculty with various specializations explore the world of knowledge, ideas and issues, often in an interdisciplinary way. For those whose personal goals or career aspirations are not met by an existing academic program, the School offers a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies. This program allows students, with guidance from two dedicated faculty members and the Dean, to shape an interdisciplinary course that meets their needs.
