College can be a supremely meaningful investment in one's life; it's an occasion for personal growth and maturation. Students continue to find out their purpose and build many of the must-have skills to be a flourishing member of society. But learning isn't completely confined to a classroom environment - the conversations which one has with their peers, the wild anecdote learned from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different life experience. Therefore, attending a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time spent at college.

Arabic Language and Literature is a less racially diverse major than average*. 70% of the US' Arabic Language and Literature majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(15%), latino students (8%), and black students (5%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is California State University-San Bernardino located in San Bernardino, CA.

Moreover, Arabic Language and Literature significatly skews female, with a tad north of 5/9ths of students majoring in Arabic Language and Literature identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Emory University in Atlanta, GA.
