About the Author

    E-mail Author
    GOKHAN SAVAS is a fifth year doctoral candidate in sociology at Syracuse University, and an adjunct faculty at SUNY Cortland. He holds an M.A. in sociology, and a certificate of advanced studies in women’s and gender studies (C.A.S.) from Syracuse University. As a quantitative researcher in education, he is broadly interested in social inequality particularly pertaining to the intersections of gender, race, and social class; achievement and attainment in postsecondary education; international immigration and the children of immigrants; and critical race theory. Recently he has been working on gender and racial differences in students’ college destinations.

    He has worked with Drs. Amy Lutz and Pamela Bennett. Using data from ELS:2002, they examine native/immigrant differences in college destinations of high school graduates after the Grutter Supreme Court decision. They focus on the importance of SAT scores and affirmative action policies in college destinations. Their research will be submitted to a leading educational journal. He has also utilized NELS for several research projects including one with Dr. Yingyi Ma. In this project, they investigate the concept of “educational credentialism” and its outcomes in the United States by examining the relationship between students’ field of study and their labor market outcomes. Their article entitled “Which is More Consequential for Income Disparity among College Graduates: Fields of Study or Institutional Selectivity?” is now under review for the Research in Social Stratification and Mobility which is the official journal of the International Sociological Association (ISA) on Social Stratification and Mobility section. Gokhan has another upcoming publication with Dr. Ma, which is entitled “Gender Inequality: Returns to Educational Investments”. This entry will be published in Sociology of Education: An A-to-Z Guide: SAGE Publication in 2013

    He also has other published articles in European Journal of Social Sciences; Race, Gender & Class; Journal of Sociological Research (Official Journal of Turkish Sociological Association), and Journal of International Human Sciences.
