The state is the No. 1 producer of coal in the U.S., the fifth-biggest provider of natural gas

The mineral production industry is one of the driving forces of Wyoming's economy. The state is the No. 1 producer of coal in the U.S., the fifth-biggest provider of natural gas, and has the largest known reserve of trona in the world, which is used for making glass, paper, soaps, and other products. Notable employers in this sector include Powder River Coal Company and Cloud Peak Energy. If you're looking into Wyoming online colleges and universities, consider getting a degree in something like mining technology or mining engineering. You'll learn necessary skills to work in the industry on machines or managing in the field, though a degree doesn't guarantee a job.

Considering Wyoming's natural beauty and vast mountains, it's not surprising that tourism is another booming industry in the state. Employees are always needed to keep national parks and monuments, like Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Devils Tower National Monument, running smoothly and ensure tourists have a good, safe time. Degrees in hospitality, business, and even wildlife management from online colleges and universities in Wyoming can potentially help you land your dream job in one of the state's beautiful habitats.

Because of the size of Wyoming and the chance that many students may live far from the college they want to attend, the public colleges act as Wyoming online colleges and universities. The University of Wyoming has bachelor's and master's degrees, certificates, and endorsements available online through its Outreach School. The seven community colleges offer online courses, and some even offer full associate degree programs and certificates online.

Private online colleges in Wyoming are a good option for busy students with full-time jobs or who don't live near a college campus. The University of Phoenix is a respected national school with a local campus in Cheyenne. College America, also in Cheyenne, offers online programs in business, information technology, and graphic arts. Other options for online students include Strayer University, DeVry University, and Everest University.
