PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

Physical education has intermediate popularity among undergraduates. The average concentration gives out 6,156 undergrad degrees per annum; 6,447 students were conferred an undergraduate degree in physical education last May, making it the USA's 74th most popular course of study for undergraduates. The University of Central Florida​ handed out more of those degrees than any other US school (417). Colleges in Louisiana granted more degrees than any U.S. State (582).

Determining the right institution for you can not be easy, seeing as 486 schools across the nation have a college degree in physical education. Compared to the average subject, there are 2.5 times as many colleges offering undergraduate degrees in physical education, making it the 42nd most widely offered degree.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 79% of last May's degrees in physical education were bachelor's degrees; 21% were postgrad degrees. Physical education is the 90th most popular grad degree in the nation, with 1,684 degrees conferred. For some context, the average subject is 65% more popular among postgrads than physical education.

In Total, 8,131 students received a bachelor's or higher in physical education last May.

ONLINE PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEGREES

379 of those 8,131 alumni (4.7%) did their learning comprehensively remotely - 26 undergrads and 353 graduate students. As you presumably can tell, physical education is an incredibly unpopular online major. It's the 180th most in-demand remote concentration with 94.6% less online students than the average subject. For postgrads, it's ranked 69th, and is 42.7% shy of the U.S. average (616).

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette​ granted the most online undergrad degrees in physical education in America (14). Last fall, 1,292 college students were enrolled in the college online, 9% of their student body. They offer 5 remote focuses. That's 9% of their courses.

Furthermore, Louisiana graduates more physical education online students than any other state (14 four-year degrees granted last May). The state independently graduates 54% of America's remote students.

Just 0.4% of all undergraduate degrees in physical education are completed in a fully remote program, (21% for grad degrees). Eastern New Mexico University-Main Campus'​ last undergraduate class contained a higher percentage of online physical education majors than any other school in the USA (1.25%). 9 students in their 707 student class received an online college degree in physical education. They offer 18 degrees online, and had 1,514 enrolled online undergrads last fall. That's 34% of the student body.

8 institutions in the country award bachelor's degrees comprehensively online, making it the 42nd most universally available online US degree. 1 out of every 50 colleges conferring the degree even have a remote option, and public institutions with bachelor's degrees in physical education outnumber private institutions 1.3 to 1. Mississippi has the most online programs of any state, with 2 colleges to choose from.

If you want to study physical education and stay motivated on your own of an comprehensively online learning environment, we suggest you check out Ball State University, as it has the 37th best physical education program in the United States of America. It also provides an additional 112 degrees comprehensively online, so their systems are presumably trustworthy. Additionally, 759 remote undergrads study at the institution, which is 5% of their whole student body.
