GRADUATE PROGRAM IN BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS
Home / Facilities
The University's green, tree-lined campus and graceful brick-faced buildings in Stockton are often compared to those of Ivy League schools on the East Coast. Roses grace the east and west entrances to the campus and line many pathways. The University is within easy driving distance of San Francisco and Sacramento, as well as many northern California attractions such as Yosemite National Park and the Napa Valley.
Students often relax on the many lawns around campus, and during the fall and spring students can be spotted improving their tans while they study. The academic buildings are concentrated in a central area and are within a 10 minute walk of each other. There is still plenty of open space. The university regularly plants trees and is continually working to maintain and expand the green "envelope" that surrounds the campus buildings. You may even have seen the campus featured in more than one Hollywood film, including Raiders of the Lost Ark and Dead Man on Campus.

On-campus, the department of psychology houses a behavior analysis lab containing computers and software for human operant research. This space also can be used as a laboratory setting for applied research and is especially suitable for functional analysis work. The space contains two rooms separated by an observation mirror. Additionally, video cameras, audio recording devices, and handheld computers with installed behavioral observation software are available. Dr. Normand's lab also is outfitted with a variety of instruments used to record physical activity, including pedometers, heart-rate monitors, and accelerometers.
Applied research opportunities also are available in the Stockton Unified school system serving typically developing children, in the home and school settings serving individuals with developmental disabilities, in the community setting serving individuals with developmental disabilities, typically developing children, and individuals with psychiatric diagnoses.
Additionally, all graduate students are assigned office space in the Psychology department and have access to a newly renovated computer lab. All classrooms are equipped with multi-media systems.
