Women Enrolling in College
in Greater Numbers than Men

Nationally, nearly 2 million more women are now attending college than men and are acquiring far more certificates, associates, bachelorís and masterís degrees. The U.S. Department of Education projects that by 2014, women will outpace men on college campuses by about 3 million, will earn 60 percent of all bachelorís degrees and a majority of professional and doctoral degrees. Some advocates worry the national trend could lead to a generation of men unable to find good paying jobs or have meaningful relationships with better educated women.
