The following short article is written to provide general advice about online education and degrees, not just information specific to WGU. If you have specific questions about WGU, feel free to inquire online or speak with an enrollment counselor (1-866-225-5948).
While it typically takes a full-time student two years to complete a master’s degree program, online master’s degrees offer more flexibility and can take more or less time depending on the student.
For instance, online universities like Western Governors University (WGU) let students take assessment exams at their own pace. Students may pass these tests quickly based on their work experience and skills, accelerating their online degree program (and lowering costs, too!)
Some programs combine degrees so students can achieve their education goals quicker.
