Study by Luther's Gokhan Savas written up in "Inside Higher Ed," discussed on "Marketplace"

Women can close the income gap with men by pursuing lucrative majors such as science, technology, mathematics and business, according to research by Gokhan Savas, Luther assistant professor of sociology, and Yingyi Ma, associate professor of sociology at Syracuse University. Their study shows studying a lucrative major to study (anywhere) is more important than choosing a prestigious school at which to study. An article in "Inside Higher Ed" discusses the research, which was recently published in "The Review of Higher Education" (abstract available here).
