College often can be an incredibly momentous adventure in one's life; it is a time for individual progress and expansion. Pupils attempt to realize who they are as people and cultivate many of the must-have skills to become a halcyon adult. But growth isn't confined to a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the life lesson learned from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different background. As such, a diverse univeristy experience vastly enhances what one gains from the time at college.

Sustainability Studies is a slightly more racially diverse major than average*. 63% of the US' Sustainability Studies majors are white students, followed by latino students (16%), students of other races**(13%), and asian students (5%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Stony Brook University located in Stony Brook, NY.

Second, Sustainability Studies significatly skews female, with 55% of students majoring in Sustainability Studies identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Otterbein University in Westerville, OH.

Sustainability Studies is somewhere around the median for class diversity (46th percentile). 29% of its students come from homes who earn more than $110,000 a year, 16% are from households with $48,000 to $75,000 annual incomes, and 24% grew up in low income households.
