College often is one of the most poignant periods in one's life; it's a time for individual growth and expansion. Students try to realize who they desire to emulate and develop the indispensable skills to be a thriving adult. But growth is not exclusively confined to a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the funny story received from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different frame of reference. As such, a diverse college experience greatly enhances what you gain from your time in school.

Russian Language and Literature is a less racially diverse subject than average*. 77% of America's Russian Language and Literature majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(11%), latino students (8%), and asian students (2%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Harvard University located in Cambridge, MA.

Secondly, Russian Language and Literature is pretty diverse regarding gender, with half of students majoring in Russian Language and Literature identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.

Another important type of diversity is economic diversity. Sadly, Russian Language and Literature is less financially diverse than 80% of subjects in the United States. 34% of its majors come from families that earn more than $110,000 a year, 16% are from homes taking in between $48,000 and $75,000 a year, and 20% grew up in low income families. Florida State University has the most economically diverse student body in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall MA is the most diverse state for Russian Language and Literature. The New England is the most diverse region, and the Pacific-12 Conference is the most diverse conference.
