Some majors can be completed more quickly than others, is that what you mean? Basically if you want a real college degree, and not a fake McDegree you bought off the internet, you're just going to have to put in the time and go for it.

There is a huge difference between majors though. I'm a current college student. I'm a double major between biology (emphasis in molecular biology/genetics) and history. Most people think it's an odd combination, but I love both areas. Just to give you an idea of how widely requirements and time needed can vary by major, however, here is what is expected (roughly) in the first two years of each major. At my university during their first two years, a history major should take: 2 semesters of Western Civilization, 2 semesters of U.S. History, their general education courses, and 3 semesters of foreign language. The biology major, however, should take: their general education courses, 3 semesters of a foreign language, 3 semesters of biology, 2 semesters of inorganic chemestry, 2 semesters of organic chemistry, 2-3 semesters of calculus (and the prerequisites to get into calculus-usually college algebra and trig), 2 semesters of calculus based physics, 1-2 semesters of statistics (general statistics and biostatistics), and biochemistry. As you can see, the first part of the biology program is going to take significantly longer to complete than the first part of the history program. The classes are also harder.

So if you're really that interested in speed, choose an easier, and shorter major. But I really don't think that's how you should go about choosing an academic program. Study what you love! That will enable you to get a job that's more interesting to you, and you'll be happier later. Most of us spend a large part of our time working. So do what will be most rewarding to you, not just what gets you out of school the quickest.
