The Job Market in Rhode Island- A Scenic and Historic Place to Study, Work and Live

Rhode Island has a history steeped in colonial culture and is accented by an avid interest in higher education and outdoor, maritime activities: nearly 30 percent of the tiny state is bordered by ocean, giving Rhode Island its nickname of "The Ocean State".

In addition to education, health care is the leading industry in Rhode Island. Manufacturing and agriculture also furnish several strong Rhode Island careers.

Rhode Island Jobs and Careers

The most popular Rhode Island jobs are in these sectors:

  • Health Services
  • Tourism
  • Manufacturing

If you are interested in studying in Rhode Island, a degree related to one of the above industries can help you take advantage of ample internship possibilities in the state. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the mean annual wage of Rhode Island jobs competes with the national average.

Rhode Island Schools, Degrees and Programs

An associate's degree is a great first step at Rhode Island schools, but you might consider earning a few extra credits and completing a 4-year undergraduate degree. For candidates with master's degrees, your salary expectations increase even further. Rhode Island has many educational institutions to choose from. You can pursue your degree through an online program or a traditional university. If you are a motivated self-starter, an online program can give you the benefit of scheduling flexibility. However, if you prefer the structure of a traditional university program, campus-based Rhode Island schools might be a better fit.
