Factors Related to Postgraduate Educational Aspirations of Women College Graduates.
de Wolf, Virginia A.
This study compared 105 women university baccalaureates intending graduate study the year following graduation with women graduates matched by age and major who did not intend such study. Aspirers had significantly higher GPAs than non-aspirers, were more satisfied with their undergraduate major, had more often selected their major as preparation for graduate study, and were more decided upon their intended occupations. It was concluded that career education efforts be strengthened for pre-major freshmen and high school women to assist them in exploring career alternatives, potential college majors, and the vocational ramifications of selecting a major.
