Feeding the Pipeline: Gender, Occupational Plans, and College Major Selection

Feeding the pipeline: Gender, occupational plans, and college major
selection
Stephen L. Morgan, ,
Dafna Gelbgiser,
Kim A. Weeden
Social Science Research
Volume 42, Issue 4, July 2013, Pages 9891005
DOI: 10.1016/j.ssresearch.2013.03.008

Highlights:
Gender differences in the first major selected in college are modeled.
Occupational plans in high school are the uniformly strongest
predictors.
Associations with plans cannot be explained away by typical observed
variables.
Gender differences in career orientations in adolescence deserve more
attention.
The results are nonetheless still consistent with prior research on
later STEM attrition

  Math or Science? Using Longitudinal Expectations Data to Examine
the Process of Choosing a College Major
Todd R. Stinebrickner, Ralph Stinebrickner
NBER Working Paper No. 16869 Issued in March 2011

“Due primarily to the difficulty of obtaining ideal data, much remains unknown
about how college majors are determined. We take advantage of longitudinal
expectations data from the Berea Panel Study to provide new evidence about this
issue, paying particular attention to the choice of whether to major in math and
science. The data collection and analysis are based directly on a simple conceptual
model which takes into account that, from a theoretical perspective, a student’s
final major is best viewed as the end result of a learning process.”

  Career Counseling for College Students: The Influence of a
Computer-Assisted Career Decision-Making Program on the
Stability of College Major Selection at a Research-Extensive University

Type of Document Dissertation
Author Feduccia, Mary D.

“The primary purpose of this study was to determine the influence of
Career Discovery I, the first module in a computer-assisted program for
career decision-making, on the stability of the choice of college majors.
This study sought to determine whether any differences existed in the
stability of college majors between students who entered a
Research-Extensive University with undeclared majors, used
Career Discovery I, and declared a major by the end of the first semester
of enrollment and students who entered the same University with declared
majors and did not use Career Discovery I during the investigation. “

  Choosing a College Major: How to Chart Your Ideal Path
by Randall S. Hansen, Ph.D.

“The most important piece of advice in this article follows this sentence,
so please make note of it and repeat it to yourself as often as you need as
you read this article and make decisions regarding choosing a major in college.
Are you ready for it?

The advice:

Don’t panic

I know it’s easier said than done, but I can’t tell you how many students
I have advised since the time that I have been a professor that seem in a
state of panic if they are uncertain of their major, let alone a career.
Choosing a major, thinking about a career, getting an education -–
these are the things college is all about.

Yes, there are some students who arrive on campus and know exactly their
major and career ambitions, but the majority of students do not, thus there
is no need to rush into a decision about your major as soon as you step on
campus. “

  Job Market Choosing a College Major: For Love or for the Money?
By DAVID KOEPPEL DEC. 5, 2004 NEW YORK TIMES

Choosing a College Major: For Love or for the Money?
December 5, 2004
By DAVID KOEPPEL
New York Times

“College should be about stretching yourself and discovering who you are
and what you want,” Ms. Steinfeld said. “Schools should not become factories.
There are hundreds of majors out there, and it’s almost always amistake to base
the decision on money alone.”
