Pitch: College Majors, Men & Women

Partnering with Rikki Reyna

Headline: Women now complete more college degrees than men – but what are they majoring in?

Slug – College Majors

Key Elements: Women are now completing more college degrees than men. What’s less widely know is what women are majoring in. Although women reached (and surpassed) equality in terms of college attendance and graduation rates in comparison to men, there still remains a large gender gap in terms of college major choice.

News Hook: There is a gender gap in the workforce, with men still making more money than women. This data shows another gender gap that exists – before men and women start their post-graduate careers.
