SUMMARY

Choosing to study Exercise Physiology is a valuable choice and typically a necessary first step for scholars planning to enter a career as an exercise physiologist, a wellness specialist, or a fitness trainer. Interestingly, nationally, exercise physiology is somewhat popular ranking as the 99th most popular degree. Last year alone, there were 3,700 exercise physiology graduates. In-state tuition for exercise physiology at private universities is, on average, 3.4 times more expensive than their public counterparts.

With just 79 schools having programs for exercise physiology you could have a smaller selection of institutions you can choose from. If you are hoping to surround yourself with other exercise physiology undergrads, consider looking at institutions in Florida which have the most undergraduates admitted to exercise physiology annually. Zooming out, the top region to pursue exercise physiology is in the Southeast region with Florida State University, University of Florida, and University of South Carolina-Columbia best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study exercise physiology is the Southeastern Conference with Auburn University, University of Florida, and University of South Carolina-Columbia representing the conference. That being said, our selection for the best school for exercise physiology is University of Miami. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The objectively best school does not mean it is the best school for you. There might be a bunch more facets to think about when deciding on college. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely modify one's decision of which college to attend. At Authority, we have weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which exercise physiology school has the top college campus, the winner is University of Massachusetts-Amherst. If you are mostly interested in which university boasts the best campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more in order to compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life&nbsphere and, from that list, our selection of the school with the best student life for exercise physiology is University of Florida.

Here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities we believe to be the best value&nbspoverall. Do know, this section is based on out-of-state tuition costs.
