Applied Psychology Students Present Original Research at Professional Conferences

Academic achievement, gender socialization, and children’s early understanding of emotions were some of the research topics tackled by Department of Applied Psychology students in their final projects.  Sijia Wang, Amy Seunghee Baeg, and Emerald Shee presented original research undertaken at Steinhardt’s Center for Research on Culture, Development, and Education at three separate professional conferences this spring.

“These students dedicated two years to projects that entailed at least ten hours a week of research responsibilities,” said faculty mentor Professor Catherine Tamis-LeMonda. “Their hard work and dedication will undoubtedly serve as a catalyst to their professional development for years to come.”
