Campus Degree Options in Virginia (VA)


Use Virginia Schools to Plan Your Future

Virginia's location near the nation's capital insulated much of the state from the recent economic downturn. Defense and technology companies and the federal government provide many jobs in Northern Virginia and the Virginia Beach/Norfolk metropolitan area continues to expand due to defense and technology requirements to support the many military installations in the vicinity. The state ranked first in Forbes Magazines' annual ranking of best states for business and careers for many years until dropping to second for 2010.

Virginia Careers for a Growing Job Market

Virginia's economy continues to grow and the unemployment rate is well below the national average, but there are some occupations the state projects may be in demand in the future. A few Virginia careers you may want to consider for above average job growth and career stability are:

  • Computer software engineers
  • Management analysts
  • Registered nurses
  • Computer system analysts

Virginia predicts the state's job market should add about 18,640 computer software engineers by 2016 and there should be about 14,230 registered nurse positions created during the same period.

Virginia Schools can Help You Compete

Many of Virginia's higher paying occupations require at least a bachelor's degree and the U.S. Census Bureau reports that over 30 percent of the state's adult population are college graduates. Continuing your education can help you compete for desirable job openings and may assist with future career advancement. If your schedule is a problem, try one of the online degree programs offered at many Virginia schools. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the mean annual salary in 2009 for a registered nurse in Virginia was about $63,270 and a computer software engineer earned about $95,420 during the same year.
