Overeducation (OE) is a controversial issue, both in terms of conceptualization and measurement. Sseveral studies highlight that its share is increasing among young graduates. The field of study seems to play a significant role in order to assess the risk of OE. Technical-scientific fields perform better than the humanistic- social ones and this hierarchy parallels the gender distribution among academic disciplines. The paper aims at verifying, among a sample of Italian graduates interviewed in 2007, 3 years after graduation, whether and to what extent the influence of the field of study on the probability to experience a condition of OE 3 years after graduation may be different for males and females. Secondly, it intends to test the hypothesis that academic performance and postgraduation training could modify the "field effect".
Keywords: Higher education graduates, gender, over-education, fields of study, educational performance, transition to work
