College often can be a profoundly constructive period of one's life; it's a chance for personal progress and development. Students try to capture what they can become and cultivate the indispensable skills to be a flourishing member of society. But learning is not solely found in a classroom environment - the interactions one has with his schoolmates, the wild anecdote gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different frame of mind. Therefore, a diverse campus vastly enriches what you gain from your time in college.

Air Transportation is a slightly more ethnically diverse subject than average*. 64% of the US' Air Transportation majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(15%), latino students (11%), and black students (7%).

Secondly, Air Transportation is the the 13th most male dominated subject, with male students out numbering female students by a 6 to 1 ratio. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Westminster College in Salt Lake City, UT.
