Is it true majoring in history is a non-traditional field for women?

  • careers -

    I couldn't find any statistics on the genders of history majors.

    In my experience as a middle school social studies teacher, only about 10% of girls really like these subjects at this age. Typically, too, the contestants for the National Geographic Bee are mostly boys.

    Then, sometime between age 15 and 25, many girls turn on to history, but they come to like history later than do most boys.

    Thanks for all of the great info. The reason I was asking was because I heard colleges really like history majoring women because they are a rarity apparently, but I've found I've found a little more than half of my history teachers have been women.
