This matches up with my experience. I double-majored in English and history. Women definitely outnumbered the men in the English department, though we had a fair number of men. There was definitely more men in the history department in general, though there was still a sizable group of us women. It wasn't quite as bad as the computer science department, where my poor roommate and one other girl were the only women in the entire department, but there was a bit of a gender gap, for sure.I did read recently, though, that women are less likely to major in history.
