The southwestern state of Arizona is the sixth largest state in the U.S. and shares a 389-mile border with Mexico. The southern part of the state is known for its desert climate, while the lesser-known northern part features forests of pine, Douglas fir and spruce trees. It's also home to Grand Canyon National Park, and about one-quarter of the state is made up of Indian reservations that serve as the home of 27 federally recognized Native American tribes. Overall, there are 35 associate degree schools in Arizona. Many graduates from schools in the Grand Canyon State go on to work in industries such as Aerospace and Defense, Technology and Innovation, Renewable Energy, Bioscience and Health Care, Optics/Photonics, Advanced Manufacturing, and Advanced Business Services.
