Who we are: 

The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences is home to baccalaureate programs in Criminal Justice, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology/Anthropology.  We also have accredited Master’s programs in Criminal Justice and Social Work, and interdisciplinary minors in Behavioral Neuroscience, Childhood Studies, Gerontology, and Victimology and Victim Services. We study different aspects of human behavior and relationships, at individual, societal, and cultural levels. We examine human dynamics to better understand each other, and how we interact with our families, communities, and environments. Also within the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences are the Stockton Center on Successful Aging (SCOSA), Child Welfare Education Institute (CWEI), Washington Internship Program (WIP), and the Stockton CSI summer residential experience.


How you can help:

Make an impact and a gift today by contributing to one of our Social and Behavioral Sciences priorities:

  • Student Faculty Engagement - SOBL is committed to providing professional enrichment opportunities to assist with career exploration. Our Curious Careers panel series highlights the variety of career opportunities for the majors housed in SOBL and prepares students for their own career exploration and development. Representing a diverse range of the experiences and career trajectories open to SOBL majors, each panel consists of four alumni who are invited to discuss their work histories and offer current students their best career advice. 

  • Youth Programming - Stockton provides young learners with educational opportunities in a university setting, such as hosting a a residential CSI summer camp for high school students who want hands-on experience with a criminal investigation and trial.

  • Childhood Studies - This program is a SOBL interdisciplinary minor that involves the study of children and adolescents from many different perspectives. Children are our future.  Support for this program provides necessary resources to prepare graduates to understand the development of children fully within the context of society and culture. 

  • Gerontology - This is a SOBL interdisciplinary minor that involves the study of adults and older adults.  People are living longer and older adults will be present in all aspects of life.  The GERO minor prepares students to address the challenges and opportunities of aging.

  • Alan F. Arcuri Pre-Law Award - This award, in memory of Professor Alan F. Arcuri, who passed away on November 20, 2017, will support Stockton students who are preparing for admission to law school by providing a stipend to pay for an LSAT preparation course.  Professor Arcuri was instrumental in establishing Stockton’s Pre-Law program.  As Stockton’s Pre-Law advisor, he mentored scores of students in their path to law school and a career in law.  Professor Arcuri worked tirelessly with students to enhance their chances of obtaining admission to law school.  This award will positively impact student-awardees by enhancing their performance on the LSAT, a key factor in both gaining admission to law school and receiving merit scholarships.

  • Program Support - SOBL strives to provide every student with an enriching experience. Program support provides the resources necessary to offer a well-rounded education such as student and faculty program research opportunities.

  • Scholarship - SOBL wants to continue to offer scholarships to deserving students who are studying and seeking a career in the fields of social and behavioral sciences.
