Research done on school bullying is very important as there is no way to improve school environments unless the key problems are identified. Social anxiety is the second most commonly diagnosed anxiety disorder and affects nearly fifteen million Americans. Social anxiety significantly impairs an individual’s work life, school life, and familial life. This study was conducted to determine if there is a correlation between secondary school bullying victimization and Social Anxiety in college students. Participants were asked to complete a questionnaire consisting of the Retrospective Bullying Questionnaire, the Social Phobia Inventory, and the Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale. The results did not show a significant correlation between secondary school bullying victimization and social anxiety disorder, showing that more research needs to be done on this topic.
