    2010 Research

    Abstract: How peers influence the development of a social identity, through the lens of three disciplines (Psychology, Sociology, Communication).

    Mentor: Dr. Patricia Chantrill, Communication Studies

    My topic was on how peers influence the development of a social identity (gender to be specific) through the lens of three disciplines, Psychology, Sociology, Communication. Past research has been done on a similar topic, though they have all included a mix of different disciplines. I took interest in how each discipline has a different perspective on how individuals are influenced, but that all in all in order to better serve young students and give them the wisdom to continue to further their education in hopes of finding a successful career no matter the gender differences. In addition to the research found from the three disciplines, I believe authority figures must carry on with encouraging those young ones around them in order to assist them in gaining enough confidence in themselves to live positive lives
