Traditionally, masters degree programs could be completed in two to three years of full time study. These programs generally range from 30 to 60 graduate credits which usually equates to 10-20 courses. Recently, a slew of accelerated programs have come out. These allow the student to complete a two or three year degree in only a single year. These one year master’s programs are available in quite a few different subject areas. I have collected a list of them, sorted by subject area below. This list is growing as I find more programs available. Please e-mail me at jack@bestmastersdegrees.org if you know of any programs I have missed.

One year masters programs are great for people who already have experience in the field and do not want to have to take years off of working in order to get a degree. One year masters programs are intense, you are still doing the same amount of work, only in half the time. You have to be a highly motivated, hard worker, in order to make this program type work for you.

    I think this list is very helpful! I was wondering if you know of other ONE YEAR Master programs that are in the US or in other countries, that have to do with Art! e.g. Art Therapy, Art Administrator/business, Fine Arts, Art Education. If there’s anything that might help me, please let me know.

    Thank you so much!

      I have listed everything I have found so far in the US. I have not yet listed programs outside of the US because, honestly, most Masters degrees programs are already only one year long in other countries.
