4 or 5 day split, mass AND strength, ideas?

Hello! I'm looking for a 4 or 5 day split made to build strength and actual muscle mass (which I assume will mean days with 6-8 rep ranges and then days with 8-12). Any recommendations or model plans I could follow? 18 year old woman, but I don't think that makes a difference. Thanks!
