College can be a particularly consequential investment in one's life; it's a time for individual progress and development. Students begin to figure out what they are capable of and learn many of the imperative skills to be a successful adult. But learning isn't completely confined to a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the funny story gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different way of thinking. As such, attending a diverse college tremendously enhances what one gains from the time spent in college.

History Teacher Education is in the bottom 10% of subjects for ethnic diversity*. 82% of the nation's History Teacher Education majors are white students, followed by latino students (14%), students of other races**(3%), and black students (1%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Illinois at Chicago located in Chicago, IL.

Additionally, History Teacher Education is pretty diverse with respect to sex, with 50% of students majoring in History Teacher Education identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY.
