Ilusanya, Gboyega; Oyebade, Stephen A.

Abstract:
Generally gender differences remain one of the greatest unresolved challenges of higher education in African countries and Nigeria in particular. This paper examined gender pattern of the output from Nigerian Universities from 1990-2000 using ex-post facto descriptive research design. Data on graduate output by course and gender were collected from the National Universities Commission, Nigeria and analysed with descriptive statistics of bar charts and percentages. The study found out that females were under-represented among the graduates in all the twelve courses of study categories between 1992-2000.
