College often can be a particularly impactful adventure in one's life; it is a chance for personal progress and expansion. Undergrads try to realize what they would like to do with their lives and cultivate many of the required skills to be a thriving adult. But growth is more than what one learns in a classroom environment - the late nights discussing Camus with a schoolmate, the life lesson received from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different view. As such, a diverse student body tremendously enriches what you gain from your time spent in university.

Science, Technology and Society is a more racially diverse focus than average*. 56% of America's Science, Technology and Society majors are white students, followed by latino students (14%), students of other races**(12%), and black students (10%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Vanderbilt University&nbspin Nashville, TN.

Furthermore, Science, Technology and Society is highly diverse when it comes to gender, with 47% of students majoring in Science, Technology and Society identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of California-Davis in Davis, CA.

Another substantial type of diversity is wealth diversity. Sadly, Science, Technology and Society is one of the United States' least socioeconomically diverse subjects (Bottom 33%). 29% of its majors come from families earning over $110,000 per year, 15% are from homes with $48,000 to $75,000 annual incomes, and 27% grew up in homes earning south of $30,000 a year. Texas Tech University is the most fiscally diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall TN is the most diverse state for Science, Technology and Society. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the Southeastern Conference is the most diverse conference.
