Summary or Abstract : This dissertation tackles three separate but related topics in the economics of education. Chapter I studies the effect that different types of high school math courses have on students' earnings nearly a decade after graduation. Not only do math courses have an indirect effect by enabling students to succeed in college, they are predicted to affect earnings directly. However, not all math courses are equally effective; more-advanced courses have a much larger impact. The analysis also incorporates specific courses in other academic subjects. Furthermore, it provides some evidence that math curriculum can help close the earnings gap between students from low- and middle-income families. This chapter uses course-level transcript data, enabling me to classify the number of math courses a student takes based on the academic level of the course. This classification scheme is the key innovation of the study and is critical to the findings..
