Founded 1969, Galloway
Stockton University made history in 2018 with the opening of a brand new campus in Atlantic City and the addition of new Unified Sciences and Health Sciences centers on the main campus.
The new $178.3 million Atlantic City project offers beachfront living and learning with housing for 533 students overlooking the beach and Boardwalk, a parking garage and an Academic Center that can accommodate up to 1,800 students. The campus is part of the Atlantic City Gateway Project, a public-private partnership with South Jersey Gas and the Atlantic City Development Corp.
Stockton's main campus in Galloway sits on 1,600 wooded acres in the Pinelands National Reserve. A $33.2 million expansion of Stockton's world-class science facilities along with a $15.2 million Health Sciences Center were dedicated in May. The new Academic Quad transformed the main entrance to the university, providing a central outdoor location for students to study and meet between classes, and a new space for campus events.
The two diverse locations allow Stockton University to offer an outstanding interdisciplinary approach to graduate and undergraduate education in arts and sciences, professional studies, the health sciences and graduate and continuing studies.
The almost 8,000-square-foot expansion of Stockton's Manahawkin instructional site in 2018 serves nursing students with a Foundations of Nursing lab featuring simulated patients and seven physical assessment examining rooms.
In fall 2017, Stockton welcomed its largest class, almost 1,600 freshmen, a 32 percent increase.
Stockton was ranked 10th among the top public Regional Universities of the North, by U.S. News & World Report in its 2018 edition of "America's Best Colleges."
Military Times rated Stockton highly in its "Best for Vets: College 2018" listing, placing the university at No. 16 among four-year schools in the nation. U.S. News & World Report also cited Stockton as "Best for Vets."
The university offers graduate programs in education, instructional technology, business administration, communication disorders, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, criminal justice, American studies, social work; the nation's first Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies; and the state's first Professional Science Master's program in environmental science. Stockton also offers doctoral programs in physical therapy and organizational leadership.
