Utah is full of beautiful ski resorts, five national parks, and six national forests, so it should come as no surprise that one of the state's major industries is tourism. Delta and SkyWest Airlines and JetBlue Airways Corp. are some of the largest employers in the state, and skills in hospitality and outdoor recreation will always be needed. Degrees in hospitality management, foreign languages, outdoor recreation, and the like from online colleges and universities in Utah can help you make a career in the state's tourism sector, though a degree doesn't guarantee you a job.

If you're interested in finance, Utah might be a great place for you. The financial services sector is booming: Zions Bank Management Services, Wells Fargo Bank, and Discover Products Inc. are three of the largest employers in the state. If you're good with numbers and money, consider attending Utah online colleges and universities for a degree in finance, accounting, or business to give you a shot at a great career in financial services.

For public online colleges in Utah, students need look no further than the well-known research universities in the state. The University of Utah offers a wealth of online courses that are accredited and follow the same schedule as the school's traditional classes. With more than 300 classes available to take online, you should be able to find courses that interest you and will get you one step closer to earning a degree. The courses are available to students who don't live near campus, but out-of-town students will likely have to find a testing center near them to take proctored exams.

Utah State University offers full degree programs online. These include Bachelor of Science degrees in agribusiness, communicative disorders, economics, family life studies, and psychology, as well as master's in some sciences and technical writing. A general studies associate degree and certificate in an area of deaf education are also available.

There are also several options for private Utah online colleges and universities. Western Governors University is a not-for-profit online college that offers bachelor's and master's programs to fit with students' busy schedules. For-profit schools include national universities, like Strayer University and University of Phoenix, as well as regional schools, such as Stevens-Henager College and Eagle Gate College.
