Graduate Programs: Most Master's degrees at WSU require between 30-36 credit hours. How quickly you finish is up to you.
Credits from other regionally accredited colleges and universities will transfer to WSU.

These programs are designed to be completed entirely online offering students the
flexibility to learn on their own schedule (within a specific timeframe). Courses
within an online program are likely asynchronous, allowing students to login independently
of a set time to participate with instructional materials.
