Abstract [en]

This paper compile four studies focusing graduates’ trajectories towards becoming professionals as they enter working life with a master’s degree in Psychology and Political Science. The result builds on a longitudinal design where graduates’ have been interviewed on three occasions; the last semester before graduation to the third year of professional work. The theoretical framework comprises a situated and social learning theory. The results indicate that becoming a professional is a dynamic learning process between a reflective individual, the interaction with a professional practice as well as a relationship between other spheres of life. This is also a process of professional identity formation influenced by the individuals’ belonging to and participation in other practices and closely related to a gender identity. It is through the negotiations between personal and socially derived imperatives that identity formation progresses throughout working life.
