Communication Studies - Interpersonal emphasis
I have conducted two research studies, one entitled, "Short Courtship and Early Marital Age in the Military," which was funded by an Undergraduate Research and Creativity grant and selected for presentation at the Central States Communication Association Undergraduate Research Conference in 2011. The second is my senior research project for communication studies: "Just a Text Away: Texting and Parent-Child Relationships during the College Transition." I have submitted abstracts for both studies to various conferences in 2012.
