I'm sorry you don't feel that you are getting the support you feel you deserve. Part of the problem is that your question is incredibly open-ended. You basically opened it up a bit too wide. You want a Masters, any Masters that can be completed in one year. The problem is that you don't actually want any Masters. You want a Masters in one of a few areas that kind-of/sort-of tangentially might interest you. Over all, I suspect that you really don't know what you want and you are hoping that one of us is going to inspire you with something you hadn't considered before. Another part of the problem is that many Masters can be completed in one year (or less than two) if you are really willing to push or are willing to pay through the nose (or both). Can you finish a Masters at WGU in less than a year? Absolutely, it's been done. Are you likely to do that? Well, it depends upon your availability. I suppose if I were single, had no commute, a job that didn't mind me doing school work on company time and an obsession with finishing my degree I could work swiftly through a program like that. Of Course, WGU and Patten make the bulk of their money from the people who have demanding jobs, commutes, and family obligations who cannot possibly finish the degree "on-time." There are full-time residential programs where you crank out a 30 credit Masters in one year. There are online programs that offer you no breaks, incredibly fast-paced terms and a massive tuition bill but might get you in under the 1 year mark. And you could always sign up for virtually any 30 credit masters degree and just take an absurd number of courses. If you can handle them then you will complete the degree in a year. As mentioned earlier, the American College of Education's masters programs are all designed to be completed in one year. There is a fair amount of joking here but you are also receiving direction. What you are not receiving is a custom tailored degree planning session with a college counselor who is going to assess all of your needs, wants and desires and place you into your dream program.
