Best colleges in Oklahoma City

From Oil Mines to Classrooms to the Moon

A city without limits

Surprisingly, Oklahoma City is more than just cowboys. You probably would never guess energy, bioscience, aviation and aerospace were major industries in Oklahoma City,* so you’ll be pleasantly surprised if you’re a science and engineering major. The oil industry is so important to OKC’s economy, petroleum engineers are even paid higher than most Americans here, with an average salary of $158,000.* Aspiring engineers and aviation enthusiasts should definitely take note as Oklahoma City is also one of just 9 cities that has a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regional office.* Of course, there are other career options, and students will have their pick from 21 other post-secondary schools, including 2 major universities that offer more than 140 majors. And with an unemployment rate lower than the national average, you’ll be quick to start interviewing for your dream job right after graduation.

Now that you realize how important it is to study when you’re attending college in the Sooner State, we assure you there’s fun to be had outside the classroom. OKC is the most populated city in Oklahoma with over 150 parks, more than 70 miles of trails, and thousands of acres of land and water. Good times will be had biking around an old beaten path or taking a cruise on the Oklahoma River, where you can explore the Boathouse District.* Spend time in the OKC theme part, Frontier City, or head over to Chesapeake Energy Arena to see some of the most compassionate fans cheer on the Oklahoma City Thunder. It’ll be an experience you’ll never forget.
