The Disappearing Male on College Campuses - Forbes

In 1950, there were 2.16 male students in all of American higher education for every female. Today, however, the tables are turned. Nearly two-thirds of college students are women. Females passed males in enrollment in 1979. Indeed, the drift towards the greater feminization of the campus continues, although at a very slow pace these days. To be sure, the extent of the feminization varies some with various levels of education and ethnicities of students. Women outnumber men by over 50 percent in master’s programs, but only very slightly in doctorate and advanced professional degree programs.
