College is a supremely meaningful period of one's life; it is an occasion for personal growth and evolution. Undergrads continue to find out who they hope to become and learn many of the required skills to be a flourishing member of society. But growth isn't entirely confined to a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the life lesson gained from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different way of looking it. As such, a diverse campus vastly enriches what you gain from your time at school.

Art Therapy is a less racially diverse focus than average*. 75% of America's Art Therapy majors are white students, followed by latino students (11%), students of other races**(7%), and asian students (5%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is St. Thomas Aquinas College&nbspin Sparkill, NY.

Furthermore, Art Therapy is the the 10th most female dominated focus, with 95% of students identify as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Long Island University in Brookville, NY.

Another significant type of diversity is economic diversity. Art Therapy ranks in the top 24% of subjects for economic diversity. 29% of its students come from households who make above $110,000 a year, 18% are from upper middle income homes, and 23% grew up in households that take home less than $30,000 a year. Ursuline College has the most fiscally diverse students in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NY is the most diverse state for Art Therapy. The New England is the most diverse region, and the East Coast Conference is the most diverse conference.
