College can be one of the most productive times in one's life; it is an occasion for personal growth and maturation. Scholars begin to capture what they can become and learn the essential skills to become a prosperous adult. But learning goes beyond the classroom - the late nights discussing Vonnegut with a peer, the life lesson received from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different vantage point. Therefore, finding a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time in college.

Broadcast Journalism is a less racially diverse focus than average*. 67% of America's Broadcast Journalism majors are white students, followed by black students (11%), latino students (11%), and students of other races**(8%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is University of North Texas located in Denton, TX.

Secondly, Broadcast Journalism is highly diverse when it comes to gender, with narrowly below 1/2 of students majoring in Broadcast Journalism identifying as women. Belmont University in Nashville, TN has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.

Another important type of diversity is class diversity. Broadcast Journalism ranks somewhere around the middle of the pack for financial diversity (58th percentile). 28% of its majors come from high income homes, 17% are from households taking in between $75,000 and $110,000 a year, and 27% grew up in homes earning south of $30,000 a year. Oklahoma City University has the most socioeconomically diverse students in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall TX is the most diverse state for Broadcast Journalism. The Southwest is the most diverse region, and the Atlantic Coast Conference is the most diverse conference.
