Education, Social Stratification and Mobility, Work and Occupations


Amanda Bosky is a graduate student in the Department of Sociology.  Her primary research interests are education and inequality across the life course, with an emphasis on stratification in work and occupations.  Currently, she is working with the High School and Beyond (1980) dataset to understand how skills and preparation in high school are related to labor force attachment at midlife.  She is also working on a project using the Educational Longitudinal Study (2002) investigating gendered returns to sub-baccalaureate credentials in young adulthood.

Amanda received a J.D. from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2009, and she received a B.A. in History and Political Science from Northwestern University in 2006.  Prior to entering graduate school, Amanda worked as an attorney for four years.
