College can be an exceedingly momentous investment in one's life; it's a time for personal progress and development. Pupils continue to learn who they can be and cultivate many of the integral skills to become a flourishing adult. But growth goes far beyond the classroom - the campus dialogue, the nugget of wisdom learned from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different position. As such, attending a diverse college vastly improves what you gain from your time spent at school.

Counseling Psychology is a slightly more ethnically diverse major than average*. 62% of the nation's Counseling Psychology majors are white students, followed by black students (15%), latino students (11%), and students of other races**(9%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Chicago&nbspin Chicago, IL.

Additionally, Counseling Psychology skews very heavily female, more so 90% of subjects. Slightly over 6 out of 7 students majoring in Counseling Psychology identify as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Arizona Christian University in Glendale, AZ.

Another substantial type of diversity is class diversity. Sadly, Counseling Psychology is one of the nation's least socioeconomically diverse subjects (Bottom 38%). 32% of its majors come from families with $110,000 plus annual incomes, 17% are from households taking in between $75,000 and $110,000 a year, and 21% grew up in families making less than $30,000 a year. Arizona Christian University has the most economically diverse student body in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall AZ is the most diverse state for Counseling Psychology. The Southwest is the most diverse region, and the Golden State Athletic Conference is the most diverse conference.
