Montana is home to numerous mountain ranges, two major public university systems and a handful of community colleges, tribal colleges and private institutions. In major cities such as Billings, Bozeman, Missoula and Great Falls, universities and colleges train students to enter a workforce with a 4.7% unemployment rate, much lower than the national average.* Montana’s economy is largely dependent on agriculture as well as oil, gas, and coal mining, lumber and tourism, so a degree in almost any subject will put you en route to a promising career.
Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park and the Rocky Mountains draw millions of visitors from around the world. The state’s geography provides ample recreation in camping, hiking, fishing and hunting. If you’re into photography, you’ll be carrying your camera everywhere, with Montana’s beautiful landscapes and gorgeous sunsets. And as key national hub of microbrewing, Montana is the perfect place to grab a beer, go for a hike, and get a great education.*Bureau of Labor Statistics *Wikipedia, “Nebraska”
