1. Hernandez, Jasmine M. Puff, Puff, Pass the Bible: An Empirical Replication Analysis of Religiosity and Attitudes towards Marijuana Legalization.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2019, Texas State University – San Marcos

Despite marijuana’s lengthy history being negatively framed and labeled by religious and secular institutions, the United States has slowly become more accepting, with various states across the country taking the initiative to legalize medicinal and/or recreational marijuana use. In order to investigate the possible changing attitudes towards marijuana legalization support and their association with an individual’s perceived religiosity level, this study is replicating an empirical study that Daniel James Krystosek (2016) conducted using the same statistical data analysis software (SPSS) and method. In utilizing the more recent 2016 General Social Survey, univariate, bivariate, and multivariate tests were conducted and numerous insights were found. Controlling for demographic, political, and economic covariates, religious service attendance (attachment) and belief in the Bible as God’s word (belief) are found to be significant independent variables, along with the control variables of being from an other race, political ideology (conservative and moderate), gender, marital status, age and education. Compared to Krystosek (2016), my results indicate that religious salience and believing the Bible’s literalness as inspired word are no longer significant and impactful predictors on U.S. opinions towards marijuana legalization support. Advisors/Committee Members: Pino, Nathan (advisor), Kim, Seoyoun (committee member), DeSoto, Bill (committee member).

2. Henderson, Charley D. From School to Community: Hepatitis C Stigma and Health Education in Rural Schools.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2018, Texas State University – San Marcos

In Texas, abstinence only programs are the primary method of sex education in public schools. Based on the School Health Advisory Council, volunteers from the community help in determining what is discussed in health and sex education. In rural conservative communities, religious morals determine how sex education is taught in public schools. Without proper knowledge and open discussion about sex and viral infections like Hepatitis C, stigma determines negative opinions around these two topics. After interviewing sixteen parents, teachers and school administrators, I found that religion, abstinence only, the preferred class in schools, consent for birth control, and the lack of information for Hepatitis C and SHAC affects what is allowed to be taught in rural Texas public schools. The result of an abstinence only sex education in rural schools is outdated classroom material, no discussion of options for birth control or unplanned pregnancies, and believing birth control is the gateway to immoral sexual intercourse. Advisors/Committee Members: Dietrich, David (advisor), Kim, Seoyoun (committee member), Taylor, Nicole (committee member).

3. Prince, Hayden A. An Investigation of Multiracial Adults' Attitudes Towards Interracial Marriage.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2020, Texas State University – San Marcos

Given the rise in interracial marriages as well as the rise of the Two or More Races population (Morin 2015; Colby and Ortman 2015), social scientists are struggling to explore new means and theoretical frameworks for how these trends will impact the American society. Recognizing the unique perspectives, identities, and racialized experiences of multiracials has heightened fascination about how this population will impact broader race relations in the United States. This thesis explores the impact that racial identity, primarily a multiracial identity, has on the opinions of interracial marriage; first by comparing a Two or More Races group between five separate race groups, then again comparing racialized attitudes between a monoracial group and multiracial group. By positioning multiraciality in the center of the analysis, this study contributes sociological and demographic research in the emerging field of critical mixed race studies. Using Pew Research Center’s public data from their Survey of Multiracial Adults, the findings suggest that people of Two or More Races hold opinions regarding the impact of interracial marriage is more like other people of color rather than white people. Further, the study finds that multiracial people are no more positive about the impact of interracial marriage than the average American—a sentiment that challenges the stereotype that multiracials are the panacea to a racially harmonious future. Advisors/Committee Members: Anderson, Audwin L. (advisor), Romero, Rachel (committee member), Kim, Seoyoun (committee member), Brooks, Maneka (committee member).
