College is an immensely formative period in one's life; it is an opportunity for personal growth and maturation. Scholars attempt to realize who they are as people and learn the essential skills to become a successful member of society. But growth is deeper than what one learns in the classroom - the late nights discussing Descarte with a peer, the personal lesson learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different perspective. Therefore, a diverse student population greatly enhances what you gain from your time spent at college.

Archeology is in the bottom 10% of subjects for ethnic diversity*. 81% of the US' Archeology majors are white students, followed by latino students (9%), students of other races**(6%), and asian students (3%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Harvard University&nbspin Cambridge, MA.

Moreover, Archeology significatly skews female, with 73% of students majoring in Archeology identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of Cincinnati-Main Campus in Cincinnati, OH.

Another substantial type of diversity is financial diversity. Sadly, Archeology is one of America's least socioeconomically diverse subjects (Bottom 6%). 38% of its majors come from very high income families, 16% are from low income homes, and 17% grew up in households earning between $75,000 and $110,000 a year. College of Charleston is the most fiscally diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall MA is the most diverse state for Archeology. The Plains is the most diverse region, and the North Coast Athletic Conference is the most diverse conference.
