Welcome to the School of Business and Social Sciences! Our school is committed to providing an exceptional education that will generate critical thinkers and trained professionals who are ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Our faculty are not only experts in their content area, but have a student-centered focus and a true dedication to the development and personal success of their students. We take pride in continually reviewing and reshaping our curriculum to meet the career needs of a fast-paced, increasingly technological and global world.
Within our Business School, housed in the Gateway Building, and our School of Social Sciences, located in Bartlett Hall, we offer a wide array of programs in a diversity of fields including Business Administration, Hospitality, Criminal Justice, Global Studies, and Health and Human Performance. We are also home to two nationally-accredited programs. Our Addiction Studies Certificate is the only community college program in New Jersey that is NASAC-accredited, and our Fire Science program is the only one in the state that is recognized by FESHE. These accreditations confirm the excellence of our programs and assure future employers of the quality education you will receive here at Ocean County College. I personally invite you to explore all of our degree programs and their career paths using the Career Coach on our website.
Prepare to transfer to a four-year institution or the workforce. Many of our certificate programs can be built into our degree programs.
