Each master’s degree program requires completion of 30 credit hours of coursework. The master’s degree courses are offered on a semester basis, with various course offerings for the fall, spring, and summer terms. Master’s degrees can be completed in as little as 24 months. You are free to take as many or as few as your schedule permits each semester. Because the classes are the same ones our on-campus graduate students take, you earn exactly the same degree with absolutely no mention of “distance learning” on your diploma.


UF EDGE master’s degree programs require formal admission to the University of Florida. Applicants must meet UF’s general admission requirements as well as those specified by the individual degree program.

For general questions and basic admission requirements, please visit the Graduate Admissions website. For information on the status of an application or to discuss requirements for admission to a specific distance learning program, please contact the academic department of interest.

Application Deadlines

Students are encouraged to apply 60-days before the start of a semester and to contact their department of interest for more assistance.
