Abstract

Regression analyses of questionnaires completed by University students (99 men, 143 women) revealed 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.
