READING — Emma Musto, a junior religious studies/sociology/family studies/women’s and gender studies major from Clarks Summit, is spending the summer tackling an Albright Creative Research Experience (ACRE) project.
Musto’s project is titled “Understanding the Impact of State Policy and Religious Perspectives on Attitude Towards Same-Sex Couples.”
ACRE is a multi-disciplinary program that affords undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct research or pursue creative endeavors during the summer break or the three-week January Interim. Students work one-on-one with faculty mentors and receive stipends from the College.
Musto is one of 24 Albright College students, from various academic disciplines, conducting ACRE projects this summer. As part of their work, ACRE students present on their research during the summer and fall, and often go on to present their findings at regional or national conferences or use it as a springboard for further study.
