Mexican American Female Enrollment in Graduate Programs: A Study of the Characteristics That May Predict Success

Mexican American Female Enrollment in Graduate Programs: A Study of the Characteristics That May Predict Success Mexican American women are among the most poorly educated of all U.S. citizens. Although the gap is narrowing, their gains have not kept pace with the increase in population. Research indicates that only a small number of Mexican American women complete a 4-year degree and even fewer go on to enter a graduate program. However, there has been little research on the characteristics that contribute to the enrollment in graduate studies of the few who do go beyond the 4-year degree. The primary goal of this study was to determine the characteristics that contribute to Mexican American women continuing their education in graduate studies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences SAGE

Mexican American Female Enrollment in Graduate Programs: A Study of the Characteristics That May Predict Success

Abstract

Mexican American women are among the most poorly educated of all U.S. citizens. Although the gap is narrowing, their gains have not kept pace with the increase in population. Research indicates that only a small number of Mexican American women complete a 4-year degree and even fewer go on to enter a graduate program. However, there has been little research on the characteristics that contribute to the enrollment in graduate studies of the few who do go beyond the 4-year degree. The primary goal of this study was to determine the characteristics that contribute to Mexican American women continuing their education in graduate studies.
