This article is a case study that describes the characteristics of gender culture of University students. The purpose is to define the socio-cultural factors involved in the integration of self-concept which influences the choice of College studies. First the theoretical framework was created in order to specify professional programs considered to be feminine or masculine. Four students, a man and a woman which were studying careers considered masculine, and a male and a female studying programs considered feminine, this selection allowed to compare results. A qualitative approach that used analytical -synthetic and theoretical- deductive methods was used; tools for collecting information are: history of life and psychological tests. As result there is a comparative diagram, which displays the influence of the family environment as part of the socio-cultural factors according to the theory of Bourdieu (1987), to choose a professional program.

Keywords : gender; self-concept; university; women’s career; men’s career.
