EDU 657 Week 4 Higher Education, 1920 1945

Check this A+ tutorial guideline at


From 1920-1945, there was significant expansion and reforms in higher education. Reflect upon the opportunities to attend college for women during this time period. Women made up about 40% of the undergraduate enrollments in 1940. This was remarkable considering that women were not permitted to earn a bachelor’s degree just 60 years prior to 1940. Also of significance were the women’s colleges of the privileged elite such as Wellesley, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar, and Barnard to name a few. Examine colleges for women during this time period and compare them to your educational experiences today. Consider the following questions:
a. In what ways did women college students in this era (1920-1945) influence the current generation of women college students?
b. What factors, conditions, and values influence present-day women to enroll in women's colleges? Discuss each one.
c. What factors, conditions, and values influence present-day women to enroll in coeducational colleges? Discuss each one.
d. If you were an employer, what would you see as the advantages and disadvantages of a female graduate from a women's college? Discuss each one.
e. Have your perceptions changed last 5 -10 years about your own potential prospects for academic and professional advancement?
Your paper should be three- to four- pages in length (not including the title and reference pages) and written in APA format. At a minimum, use two external sources, in addition to the course textbook. Remember to cite all references using APA style.
