NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Twenty-five Westminster College psychology and neuroscience majors presented their senior capstone projects on Tuesday, Dec. 11 in Hoyt Science Center.

Capstone is a course that provides an opportunity for students to conduct in-depth research in their majors. After completing their research projects, which were proposed during the spring semester of junior year, the psychology and neuroscience students presented their research findings and discussed the implications of their work.

Faculty advisers for the capstone projects included Dr. Deanne Buffalari, assistant professor; Dr. Mandy Medvin, professor; Dr. Sherri Pataki, associate professor; Dr. Jessica Rhodes, assistant professor; and Dr. Sandra Webster, professor.

“I believe this opportunity to conduct undergraduate research with faculty is one of the greatest strengths of our program,” says Pataki. “This experience provides great preparation for graduate school, medical school, and professional careers, and our alumni often reflect back on how valuable this experience was to them following their graduation from Westminster.”
