Introduction: This study aimed to examine the degree of femininity or masculinity of gender stereotypes related to different academic fields, i.e. Math, Language, Humanities, Art, Life Sciences, and Medicine, in the minds of Iranian students.Method: Two hundred and twenty five male and female students of Kardani, BS and MS majoring in math and humanities from four higher educational centers in Tehran were selected according to convenience, and answered a questionnaire. One-sample t-test, as well as two-way and repeated measure ANOVAs were used in data analysis.Results: The two fields of Math and Medicine were considered masculine, while Art had a feminine stereotype. In case of Humanities, Language and Life Sciences, women regarded them as feminine, whereas men had a neutral image of them. A gender difference was observed indicating that women viewed the academic fields as being more feminine. In case of Humanities, the interaction of students’ gender and educational field was significant. Further, compared with students of math, students of humanities regarded Math to be more masculine.Conclusion: The results suggest that simply relying on educational statistics to decide about the femininity or masculinity of gender stereotypes related to different academic fields is not sufficient, first, because of people’s experiences with those having a job (in case of Medicine), and studying (in case of Math) in these academic fields, and second, due to the determining role of the motivational factors associated with group membership of persons holding those stereotypes.
