How long will it take to get a doctorate degree?

The answer depends on the path you choose. A doctorate degree requires at least 60 to 120 semester credit hours (or, approximately 20-40 college classes). The majority of PhDs take the full 120 hours, although most applied doctorates are on the lower end of the spectrum.
The duration of the course also depends on the subject area you are pursuing and the type of program offered by the institution. A doctorate usually takes 4 to 6 years, whereas a PhD can take up to 8 years.
