Analytical Course Inspires Student Research And Confidence
Niagara University’s College of Business Administration has a history of encouraging students to think beyond writing a paper for a class and, instead, with faculty collaboration, turn an idea for a paper into a conference worthy presentation.
Allyssa Wadsworth, a junior working towards a double degree in economics and mathematics, and Dr. Jay Walker, assistant professor of economics, attended the 85th Annual Conference of the Southern Economic Association in New Orleans, La., in November. Wadsworth presented their paper, “Religiosity and the Impact of Religious Secondary Schooling,” as part of Session 3.A.34 on culture and income.
This paper grew directly from a class project in Dr. Walker’s spring 2015 econometrics course.
