Request Information

Arizona is home to a number of well-known and well-regarded institutions of higher education, including three public universities, the University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University, and Arizona State University, as well as 21 state community colleges, and 15 private state colleges. With schools boasting huge enrollments (Arizona State is the largest public university by enrollment) and many catering to non-traditional and adult learners, educational quality is paramount.

As a result, Arizona’s institutions of higher education and the state government are both working to help improve the quality of education in the state through initiatives like these:

  • Arizona Higher Education Enterprise Plan (AHEE). Also run by the Arizona Board of Regents, this program aims to get more Arizona students to graduate from college. To do this, the plan calls for reforms in the instructional delivery model and the financing of the system.
  • Arizona Ready. Arizona Ready is a statewide plan to improve Arizona schools launched in 2011. The program addresses grade levels from K-20, aiming to only to better prepare students for college but to double the number of degrees being issues by state universities.
  • Professional Student Exchange Program. Students in areas like dentistry, occupational therapy, optometry, and veterinary medicine can take part in an professional student exchange program between Arizona’s public universities and other member schools of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, offering a greater variety of educational opportunities for students in all member states.

For students who would prefer to pursue an online education program, Arizona offers a wealth of different opportunities. All three of Arizona’s public universities offer online bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in a wide range of fields, covering everything from biology to business. Many other programs are offered through the state’s two-year colleges and technical schools. There, students can find associate’s and certification programs. Arizona is also home to a number of well-known, for-profit schools with solid online educational programs including Argosy University, Devry University, and the University of Phoenix. These schools offer degrees at all levels and in a wide range of majors to students within Arizona and around the U.S.

Getting a Career in Arizona With Your Degree

Recent job market data suggests that the job market in Arizona will be among the strongest in the nation, ranking second in the most recent Manpower employment survey. This is thanks to strong growth in industries like construction, manufacturing, information and technology, education, healthcare, and hospitality, many of which are growing quickly and are in need of qualified professionals to fill openings.

Online educational programs can play a key role in helping to prepare students to take on jobs within these key state industries. Some paths to consider include a degree in nursing or health care management, which can give students access to a wide range of jobs within the state’s booming healthcare industry, one of the biggest and fastest growing in the state. Another great option is pursuing a degree in information technology, computer science, management information systems, or software engineering. These degrees are a smart first step towards finding work in one of Arizona’s cities with numerous high-tech businesses and industries, like Tuscon. Other great degree programs include hospitality management, environmental science, aerospace engineering, or green energy.

Students who live in Arizona or hope to attend school there can take advantage of online degree programs from the following colleges and universities:
