Simpson, Jacqueline C.
Journal of Higher Education, v72 n1 p63-100 Jan-Feb 2001
This study analyzed choice of academic major for different racial groups. While Asian Americans chose different majors than non-Asians, differences in factors affecting choice of major occur between European Americans and African, Hispanic, and Native Americans. Academic preparation, private schools, and maternal influence are areas of disparate influence for different racial categories. (Author/EV)
