With full-time study, the MASTAHG degree may be completed in as few as 22 months. The key term to note is full-time. While possible, 22 months is an aggressive plan that is appropriate only for those whose personal and professional responsibilities allow them to be a full-time graduate student.
Have the time to dedicate all of your energies to graduate studies? Here's a sample plan of study:

For the typical student who must balance their studies with family and employment, the 22 month plan may be too aggressive. Instead, take advantage of a key feature offered by Ashland's MA programs: the flexibility to spread out your studies over a longer period (up to 10 years from the start of your first course in the program). A more typical completion time is 2 to 3 years, depending upon your available time and financial resources.This sample plan of study is simply an illustration of one possible approach to completing your studies. Students are free to work out a plan that best suits their needs and abilities.
