  •  Student Spotlight: Senior Thesis Students

    Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014

    Dr. Katharine Heintz is supervising a group of 20 seniors who are completing their thesis project on the topic of Family Communication in the Digital Age. The students designed an online survey and administered it to pupils in several sixth-grade classrooms around the South Bay Area. Working in two-person teams, they will analyze the collected data for evidence of relationships between family communication styles, children's media use, family rules about technology, and children's interpersonal communication competence. Some teams will be exploring gender and racial differences in these variables. Once their reports are complete, some teams will present their findings to fellow SCU undergrads, while others will return to the sixth-grade classrooms and discuss their findings with the students.

Congratulations to Blair Boone, Sabrina Brutocao, Brittany Calvo, Jaclyn Cardosa, Sylvana Dalsgaard, Paula Gonzalez, Sarah Jackson, Laura Jalalian, Alexandra Johnston, Ashley Pinnell, Jeffrey Ramos, Sasha Sommer, Caroline Stouffer, Megan Swindells, and Veronica Yu.
