Physiology is the 163rd most popular degree in America, with 1,654 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #164 Digital Arts, and narrowly lost to #162 Sales, Distribution, and Marketing Operations.

The degree is offered at a total of 21 colleges across the nation, and is the 377th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 4% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 67% of colleges offering physiology are public making it a quite accessible field.

The far west produces the most physiology graduates, largely led by University of California-Los Angeles, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Colorado ranks highest, with particular help from University of Colorado Boulder and University of California-Irvine, which graduated 343 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study physiology). More students studied physiology as a percentage of total students at University of Colorado Boulder than any other college.
