ACADEMIC CLUSTERING AND MAJOR SELECTION OF INTERCOLLEGIATE STUDENT-ATHLETES

VIEWS: 73 PAGES: 7

Although journalists and reporters have written about academic clustering among college student-athletes, there has been a dearth of scholarly analysis devoted to the subject. This study explored football players' academic major selections to determine if academic clustering actually existed. The seasons 1996, 2001, and 2006 were selected for analysis. A list of academic majors representing each football team from each of the three seasons was created. Furthermore, academic majors consisting of 10 or more players were selected and compared to the general student body that were also enrolled in those specific majors at the respective institutions. In regards to the theory of clustering, Chi-square was used to identify statistical significance. The results suggested that academic clustering existed within intercollegiate athletics when compared to the general students at the respective institution. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
