Integrative Studies
in Criminal Justice

Dr. Reveka Shteynberg


I am Dr. Reveka Shteynberg, Assistant Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at California State University San Bernardino.

Curious about how to prounounce my last name? If you pronounce the sound "sh" and the word ‘Spain’ then you can say 'Shteyn' and then all you need to do is just add the 'berg' for the full 'Shteynberg' effect. You can also just call me Dr. S if you want to "Shtey" away from calling me Dr. Shteynberg. And yes, yes I do indeed like groan worthy puns. But enough about that. Here's what you need to know:
