Online Schools in Hawaii
Though Hawaii once thrived on tourism, leisure, hospitality and retail, recent data indicates that economic growth in the future will be centered on education, health services, science and technology, and energy.
According to a recent report from Georgetown University's Center on Education and the Workforce, between 2008 and 2018, more than 130,000 new jobs requiring post-secondary education are expected to open up in Hawaii--that's about double the number of new jobs expected for high school graduates and 10 times the number of new positions for high school dropouts.
Living and working while earning a Hawaii online degree
Life in Hawaii's island paradise doesn't come cheap. According to the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center, Hawaii had the highest cost of living in the U.S. in 2010. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show that workers here earn some of the top wages in the country, with workers in all occupations bringing home mean hourly wages of approximately $21 or nearly $44,000 annually.
Jobs in Hawaii's fastest-growing industries may pay even more. The mean annual wage for those working in the education sector was $47,690, while health care practitioners had a mean annual wage of $82,720 in 2010, the BLS reports. Those working in the sciences earned on average $63,050.
