College is an awfully poignant period of one's life; it is an opportunity for individual growth and development. Scholars continue to ascertain who they are as people and learn many of the necessary skills to become a halcyon adult. But learning goes beyond a classroom - the late nights discussing Langston Hughes with a classmate, the life lesson gained from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different interpretation of the situation. Therefore, finding a diverse college tremendously improves what you gain from your time at college.

Social Studies Teacher Education is in the bottom 10% of subjects for ethnic diversity*. It has the 9th biggest share of white students. 86% of America's Social Studies Teacher Education majors are white students, followed by latino students (6%), students of other races**(4%), and asian students (2%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is New York University&nbspin New York, NY.

Furthermore, Social Studies Teacher Education slightly skews male, with barely north of 3 out of every 7 majors identifying as men. Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.

Another substantial type of diversity is income diversity. Social Studies Teacher Education is the 14th most economically diverse subject in America. 26% of its students come from homes taking in over $110,000 a year, 18% are from homes earning between $75,000 and $110,000 a year, and 25% grew up in low income families. Ball State University is the most fiscally diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall OK is the most diverse state for Social Studies Teacher Education. The Southwest is the most diverse region, and the University Athletic Association is the most diverse conference.
