Moral Elevation and Disgust: The Influence of Emotions on Moral Judgments

By Derick DeCamp,

Rebecca Felegy, and

dr. Frederick Foster-Clark 

Rebecca Felegy is a second-year graduate student in the Clinical Psychology program. She grew up in Lancaster, which influenced her decision to come to Millersville where she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in international studies. Her passion for people and interest in research pushed her to pursue her master’s degree.  Her involvement with this project is an extension of Derick DeCamp’s undergraduate research thesis, studying how emotions influence moral decision making. She began working with Dr. Foster-Clark to further explore the results of the study. She wants to use her research skills in hopes of conducting her own thesis before graduating. After graduation, Rebecca plans on pursuing a career as a Licensed Professional Counselor and possibly continue onto a doctoral program.
