Online Surveying Programs

As children, we marvel at the world around us. From exotic locales to our own back yards, we wonder how the Earth is put together. If you envision yourself as a modern day explorer and want to dedicate your professional life to explaining the natural world, consider a fast-growing career in surveying.

Surveyors spend many of their days outdoors using specialized equipment to measure and map the Earth's surface. Some concentrate on large-scale cartography, while others work with the architectural industry on building surveying. The Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that most surveyors need a bachelor's degree to enter the field, so interested applicants may want to enroll as soon as possible in a convenient online degree program. Specific coursework varies by specialization, but all aspiring surveyors can benefit from training in mathematics (algebra, geometry, and trigonometry) as well as drafting and computer science.
