Our empirical analysis is based on a sample of students who left German higher education in 2014. Our results confirm previous findings that women in gender‐atypical subjects show a higher drop‐out risk than their male fellow students. We assess several mechanisms which could contribute to explain this effect. Contrary to our expectations, social integration, in the sense of contact with lecturers, seems to be a protective factor for women and men in gender‐atypical subjects. For women in gender‐atypical fields of study, contact with peers is an additional protective factor against drop‐out. The most important mechanism to explain higher education drop‐out is women's more negative self‐assessment of their suitability for male‐dominated subjects.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-09T15:10:20Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/46276/1/Meyer_2-1kp9vh3570bjo9.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>2019</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Strauß, Susanne</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/46276/1/Meyer_2-1kp9vh3570bjo9.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Strauß, Susanne</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>The influence of gender composition in a field of study on students’ drop-out of higher education</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-09T15:10:20Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Jasmin</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46276"/> <dc:creator>Meyer, Jasmin</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
