Social Class and Belonging: Implications for Graduate Students' Career Aspirations
Ostrove, Joan M.; Stewart, Abigail J.; Curtin, Nicola L.
Journal of Higher Education, v82 n6 p748-774 Nov-Dec 2011
We examined the role that social class background plays in graduate students' career goals. Class background was significantly related to the extent to which students struggled financially in graduate school, which related to their sense of belonging in graduate school. Sense of belonging related to academic self-concept, which predicted students' interest in becoming professors at "top research universities." (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
