UF’s Applied Physiology and Kinesiology Master’s Program Ranks #1

We are pleased to announce that our Master of Science in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology (APK) was named the #1 online master’s in exercise science by the Guide to Online Schools. We are excited to earn this ranking, as it validates the quality of our program and commitment to helping students succeed.

The site used a formula that incorporates return on investment, tuition rates, and alumni salary, in addition to data from 78,000 online programs. University of Florida’s M.S. APK came in second in terms of highest mid-career salary, with the estimate that our alumni make an average of $115,384/year ten years out from graduation.

We also received news that University of Florida’s M.S. APK is ranked #12 on OnlineU’s annual ranking of “Most Affordable Master’s In Exercise Science Online.” Our cost per credit hour is $550, and the total amount of our 30-credit degree is just over $17,500. This ranking is out of all accredited schools that offer fully online degrees, and the ranking considers factors like available degrees, tuition rates, acceptance rates, and program coursework.

This joins our rankings on best-value lists from the Princeton Review, Forbes, Kilplinger, and the Fiske Guide to Colleges. The kinesiology program is also ranked #4 by the National Academy of Kinesiology.

We know that cost is an important factor when it comes to deciding whether to pursue an advanced degree, and we respect the investment that our students make when they choose the University of Florida. We strive to make that investment as rewarding as possible. That comes through high-quality classes taught by expert instructors and an emphasis on applied skills that our students can use immediately on the job. In addition, the College of Health & Human Performance, which houses the M.S. APK, awards more than $172,000 in scholarships annually.

The M.S. APK can also be completed while working full-time. The program is offered 100% online and students can view lectures whenever it is convenient to their schedules. Even while attending school part time, our students can finish their degree in as little as 1.5 years.
