List of 4-Year Public Universities & Colleges in West Virginia
Degree Programs at West Virginia State UniversitiesWith approximately 2 million residents, the employment diversity in West Virginia is as diverse as the geography that surrounds it. State universities offer an array of majors to support a growing economic base. In fact, students can elect to study traditional degree pathways or growing fields of study dependent upon what motivates them most. Traditional degree options include history, accounting, engineering, biology, business, and teaching. On the other hand, emerging areas of study gaining prominence in the academia arena include fields like data modeling, robotics, sustainability studies, toxicology, cytotechnology, immunology, hydrology, gerontology, and computer engineering. In both cases, you can use a bachelor’s degree in one field to expand your skills in an adjacent area of study. Meaning, if you earn an undergraduate degree in math it can be used to step into a master’s degree in computer science or actuarial science just as an undergraduate degree in engineering can be leveraged to earn a graduate degree in aeronautical engineering or law.
