College is a very poignant adventure in one's life; it is an opportunity for personal growth and evolution. Scholars start to ascertain who they desire to be and cultivate many of the underlying skills to become a prosperous member of society. But learning is not simply found in the classroom - the interactions which one has with their peers, the wild anecdote received from an old instructor, the exposure to a different outlook. As such, a diverse college experience vastly enriches what one gains from the time in school.

German Language and Literature is a less racially diverse subject than average*. 76% of the US' German Language and Literature majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(12%), latino students (6%), and asian students (3%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is University of California-Los Angeles&nbspin Los Angeles, CA.

Second, German Language and Literature is pretty diverse when it comes to gender, with a little over 1 in 2 students majoring in German Language and Literature identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA.

Another critical type of diversity is income diversity. German Language and Literature is pretty close to the median for financial diversity (52nd percentile). 31% of its majors come from very high income households, 16% are from households that make between $48,000 and $75,000 a year, and 22% grew up in families that take home below $30,000 a year. University of North Carolina at Charlotte has the most financially diverse student body in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NY is the most diverse state for German Language and Literature. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the University Athletic Association is the most diverse conference.
