However if a prospective student has no more knowledge of a university major subject than an average member of the general public, then I find any process that awards them a degree without the necessity of significant additional study to not be credible. To take this further. Such a program would actually be more viable at the graduate level, where study is more specialized. A BA has a breadth component which would make the opportunity to condense preparation time even more remote. A person does not need more knowledge than the general public in a subject but in many subjects. Again, the bottom line is that to suggest that you can condense a 6000 hr degree with the standard requirements of breadth and depth down to 1 year and less... is foolishness.
