Dual Credit in Holocaust & Genocide Studies

Stockton University offers a dual credit course in Holocaust and Genocide Studies for high schools. This entails supervision by a Stockton faculty member, as well as a few common assessments. The program has been in existence for three years and continues to grow.

Students are given a course in Holocaust and Genocide Studies in high school and, upon successful completion, will receive 4 college credits from Stockton University. The cost, at this point is $400.00, but financial aid may be available.

This program has been in place for several years at Atlantic County Institute of Technology, Egg Harbor Township High School, Holy Spirit High School, St. Augustine's Prep, and Vineland High School. Last year, the consortium was expanded to include Mainland Regional High School, Middle Township High School, Pleasantville High School, and Sterling High School. The 2017-2018 session adds Lower Cape May Regional and Millville Senior High School; bringing the total number of schools serviced to eleven. The expansion is slated to continue in 2018-2019 with two schools committing already and a potential of eight total additions. 

With the Dual Credit program, the high school program, course, and students will receive guidance and supervision from a Stockton University faculty member with specialization in Holocaust and Genocide Studies.  The teacher will be afforded many professional development opportunities from Stockton and the Holocaust Resource Center, as well as mentoring from our staff member. The students will have guest lecturers (both in school and on the Stockton campus), the opportunity to engage in field trips, performances, and other related activities.

If there is a Holocaust course already in place, it can be reviewed and amended. If the school is thinking about instituting a new course, our staff will be eager to advise and help in its creation. In any event, we look forward to working with you and your students in the near future!
