Dean's Message

Welcome to the School of Health Sciences

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the School of Health Sciences, I welcome you to our website, and invite you to explore the information presented here to learn about our distinctive offerings at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This is an exciting time to be involved in healthcare and the health sciences. In the SHS, we offer the finest health science education to our students grounded in the traditions of Stockton University. Our classes are taught by highly distinguished faculty who bring academic and clinical expertise to the classroom. In collaboration with our community partners across the region, we provide innovative, cutting-edge academic and clinical experiences so our students are well-prepared to meet the demands of the competitive healthcare marketplace. Our faculty are engaged in research and clinical scholarship to improve healthcare outcomes for people across the lifespan, in their homes, in schools, in the community and in the workplace. Faculty partner with students for research and service opportunities at local, regional and global locations.

At the undergraduate level, we offer degrees in Nursing, Exercise Science, Public Health, and a state-of-the-art Bachelor of Science in Health Science program grounded in interprofessional education that prepares students for a variety of career paths in health-related fields. Our graduate entry-level programs in Communication Disorders, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy provide students with the knowledge and skills to enter these growing fields with strong foundations in research and clinical excellence. We also offer a graduate degree in Nursing which allows students to receive specialty certification as an Adult Gerontology-Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. Finally, in conjunction with Thomas Jefferson University, we offer a dual degree, accelerated, five-year course of study - which enables qualified students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies (MSPA).

To meet the needs of the lifelong learner, the School now offers a full range of continuing education courses. Each fall we offer a highly-rated workshop for clinical educators, and registration is free for clinical educators who supervise out students in the field. Please check our Continuing Education page for updates.

In the School of Health Sciences we have a commitment to lifelong learning, achievement of excellence in all we do, and improved quality of life for all those we serve. Please explore these pages and contact us if you have questions. We look forward to seeing you on campus.
