Student Careers of Graduate Student Women in Sociology at an Elite Department.
Fox, Greer Litton
This investigation examines the student careers of 25 women who were enrolled as graduate students in sociology at the University of Michigan during 1967. Specifically, the study suggests that for those women with focused involvement and peripheral sex role orientation, the likely career pattern is continuation until Ph.D. completion and the most relevant variable set in decisions is academic experience. For those with divertible involvement and peripheral sex role orientation, the career pattern is likely to be early termination or termination upon MA or ABD achievement and the most relevant variable is achievement motivation. For those women students with divertible involvement and central sex role orientation, the career pattern is variable and the most relevant variable set in decisions is female role considerations. In sum, the study uncovers the ways in which sets of determining variables act over time upon various types of women to produce a series of decisions which, in the aggregate, define the careers of graduate student women.
