College can be a fabulously significant time of one's life; it's an opportunity for personal progress and expansion. Pupils try to figure out what they desire to do and cultivate many of the needed skills to be a thriving member of society. But growth goes far beyond the classroom - the late nights discussing Camus with a schoolmate, the personal lesson learned from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different way of viewing the world. As such, a diverse student body greatly improves what one gains from the time spent at university.

Theatre Design and Technology is a less racially diverse major than average*. 75% of the United States' Theatre Design and Technology majors are white students, followed by latino students (10%), students of other races**(8%), and asian students (4%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Nevada-Las Vegas located in Las Vegas, NV.

Additionally, Theatre Design and Technology significatly skews female, with 66% of students majoring in Theatre Design and Technology identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Belmont University in Nashville, TN.

Another important type of diversity is socioeconomic diversity. Theatre Design and Technology ranks pretty close to the median for socioeconomic diversity (44th percentile). 30% of its majors come from high income households, 16% are from households with $48,000 to $75,000 annual incomes, and 23% grew up in homes with a sub $30,000 yearly income.
