College can be an exceedingly significant period of one's life; it is a chance for individual progress and maturation. Pupils try to realize who they can be and cultivate many of the requisite skills to become a successful adult. But learning isn't exclusively found in a classroom - the conversations one has with his schoolmates, the wild anecdote learned from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different frame of reference. Therefore, a diverse college experience tremendously improves what one gains from the time in school.

Computer Programming is a slightly more ethnically diverse major than average*. 63% of the nation's Computer Programming majors are white students, followed by latino students (11%), black students (9%), and students of other races**(9%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Yale University located in New Haven, CT.

In addition, Computer Programming is the the 19th most male dominated subject, with 83% of students identify as men. Western Colorado University in Gunnison, CO has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.

Another significant type of diversity is income diversity. Unfortunately, Computer Programming ranks in the bottom 14% of majors class diversity. 34% of its students come from homes with a sub $30,000 income, 15% are from middle income homes, and 22% grew up in households earning above $110,000 a year.
