dc.description.abstractAnticipated shortfall in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce in the United States has prompted researchers and policy-makers to examine the supply pipeline and factors influencing the supply pipeline. Applying Social-Cognitive Career Theory, this study examined decision-making predisposition of college students who were interested in STEM majors. Results show significant gender and racial differences in in decision-making self-efficacy, decision-making style, and career indecision. Logistic analyses show that race, decision-making style, and career decision-making self-efficacy significantly predict enrollment in STEM majors. Implications for counseling interventions are discussed.
