La Plume - Students from all three majors of Keystone’s School of Social and Behavioral Sciences recently had several papers accepted for presentation at the 2014 conference of the American Psychological Association. 

Current students Ashley Cady (psychology) and Kathryn Charnogursky (criminal justice/psychology) will present their paper “The Effects of Gender on the Incidence and Intensity of Cyber-Bullying,” while recent social science graduate Cassie Benscoter’s paper is entitled “The Effect of Gender and Relationship Status on the Willingness to Engage in Cheating Behavior.” Ashley and Kathryn also received an Undergraduate Research grant from the College to travel to the conference scheduled for August 7-10 in Washington, D.C.

The students took projects originally conducted in psychology faculty member Dr. Steven Howell's Research Implementation and Analysis class and developed them further with Dr. Howell via independent study research courses.
