dc.description.abstractTen Latino/a students were interviewed about their experiences studying a STEM subject at Texas State University. The purpose was to ascertain what motivates students to study STEM subjects, what their experiences studying STEM subjects at Texas State is like, and if there were any differences between the responses given by men and women regarding their experiences. The study found that students often went through an adjustment phase which could result in a drop in grades or change in major or program. Students were motivated by a sense of identity arrived at through participation in student organizations. Finally, there were differences in the experiences of men and women, some women going so far as stating that although their gender has presented challenges, particularly as a result of how they are viewed as women and as scientists, that ethnicity presented little to none of these sorts of challenges in comparison.en_US
