The Role of Internalized Stereotyping, Parental Pressure, and Parental Support on Asian Americans' Choice of College Major
Shen, Frances C.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v43 n1 p58-73 Jan 2015
The author explored the relationship between internalized stereotyping, parental pressure, and parental support on major choices among 315 Asian American undergraduate and graduate students. Results indicated that parental support, but not parental pressure, toward certain majors was associated with more stereotypical major choices. In addition, internalization of academic and career stereotypes was associated with more stereotypical major choices.
