Lackland, Anne Childers; De Lisi, Richard
Journal of College Student Development, v42 n1 p39-48 Jan-Feb 2001
Seeks to clarify choices of traditional and nontraditional majors by female and male college students. Regression analyses of questionnaires reveal that humanitarian concerns, femininity scores, masculinity scores, and utility values were significant predictors of college major. Education, English, and nursing majors had greater confidence, satisfaction, and expectations for future success than did engineering, mathematics, and physics majors.
