West Virginia is an international hub of the chemical industry, and the profits from this sector make up almost half of the state's gross state product

West Virginia is an international hub of the chemical industry, and the profits from this sector make up almost half of the state's gross state product, according to 2010 numbers. About 13,000 people in West Virginia work in the chemical industry, many for major companies like Bayer Polymers LLC, Dow Chemicals, and DuPont. To break into this industry, obtaining a degree either on campus or through West Virginia online colleges and universities will help you meet the requirements for entry-level positions, though it won't guarantee you a job. Some possible subjects are chemical engineering, applied science, and chemistry.

The energy sector in West Virginia is also booming. Though the state has long been known for its coal mines, which still lead the nation in production, the natural gas industry in West Virginia also expanded, so the state now contributes about 15% of the national fossil fuels supply. Some of the largest employers in the state are American Electric Power, Consolidation Coal Company, and Allegheny Energy Service Corporation. Though degrees aren't required for many positions in the energy industry, management and top-paying jobs will probably require you to have a degree of some kind, maybe in energy management, engineering, or a specialized energy sector.

Several technical and community colleges offer online programs, as well as many four-year public universities. Fairmont State University, Marshall University, and Concord University all offer online courses for people with busy schedules that don't allow for traditional classes. West Virginia University grants graduate and undergraduate degrees and certificates online, as well, so you have plenty of options for public online colleges and universities in West Virginia.

Other students might prefer private West Virginia online colleges, which are either for-profit or not-for-profit. If you're interested in a Master's of Education, Ohio Valley University provides a program online, or you can earn your Bible Certificate from Appalachian Bible College. For-profit colleges with online degree programs include Valley College, West Virginia Junior College, Salem International University, and Strayer University.
