Gender Economics Courses in Liberal Arts Colleges
Gender has become a "hot" research topic in recent years and has begun making its way into the classroom (Conrad 1992). Interest in gender issues has spread, but only a small proportion of economics departments beyond the few top national liberal arts colleges include courses in gender economics. This article presents a simultaneous probit model of gender-related economics courses as well as women's studies programs in the undergraduate, liberal arts curriculum. Liberal arts colleges are often perceived to be in the forefront of undergraduate pedagogy. I restricted the study to these colleges to avoid, as much as possible, the complications created by graduate programs. Liberal arts colleges are generally private and not subject to state mandates.
