COMPETENCIES IN UNIVERSITY DEGREES: ANALYSIS OF THEIR RELATION TO GENDER STEREOTYPES

M.S. Rodriguez-Burgos, A.M. Porto-Castro

Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (SPAIN)
In this research we work, on the one hand, with the gender stereotypes that the bibliography on this field collects and, on the other hand, with specific competencies from the new Bachelor degrees in university education. Our project aims to check the relations that take place between specific competencies from two feminized and two masculinized Bachelor degrees and gender stereotypes corresponded to the dominant sex in these degrees at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela. For this, it is made an instrumental study of cases with the following degrees: Nursery (feminized), Computer Engineering (masculinized), Physics (masculinized) and Psychology (feminized). After a qualitative treatment of the information and a data analysis that combines qualitative and quantitative methodologies, we get to the conclusion that, as we had anticipated, we can find a higher level of femenine stereotypy in feminized degrees and a higher level of masculine stereotypy in masculinized degrees, being this phenomenon a fact that leads to maintain the traditional distribution of gender roles in society.
