While most online colleges have even numbers of men and women, some tend to attract more of one or the other. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) schools tend to attract disproportionate numbers of males. Nursing degree schools, on the other hand, tend to attract much higher numbers of women. Our newest infographic illustrates the schools with the highest male and female populations and those that are split 50-50. (Note: for the purposes of this infographic, we excluded seminaries and other theological schools, because they tend to be one or the other).
