Abstract


Gender and race have consistently been associated with racial prejudice and discrimination. This study investigates these relationships further along with college major. Looking at a college academic major that is overrepresented with a gender and racial group associated with modern racism to discover if this leads this academic major to predict modern racism attitudes and beliefs. The research participants consisted of 225 undergraduate and graduate students at an ethnically diverse regional university in the southeastern United States. As hypothesized, gender, race, and college major are significant predictors of modern racism.
