The Graduate School Pipeline and First-Generation/Working-Class Inequalities
Sociology of Education

José A. Muñoz (sociology) was among the researchers who published a new study that examined “inequalities generated by and within educational institutions. Although relatively rich as a literature, less analytic focus has centered on educational mobility and inequality experiences within graduate training specifically. In this article, we draw on a combination of survey and open-ended qualitative data from approximately 450 graduate students in the discipline of sociology to analyze graduate school pipeline divergences for first-generation and working-class students and the implications for inequalities in tangible resources, advising and support, and a sense of isolation.”
