Summer course load?

rp1242rp1242 Posts: 81Registered User Junior Member
Is two classes in a one month summer period too much? It's just intro psychology and gov II, but it seems to me like two classes in one month is equivalent to 8 classes in a 4 month period which is tantamount to taking 24 credit hours.

Do most people just take one class in the short summer terms?

    No, no, two is enough, three is pushing it!
    I took Psych last summer, with an intro to theater class as well and it wasn't bad at all. Gov compared to theater will be more work probably but nah, it should be fine!
    The chapters for psych are long so its just sort of a heavy reading, but it's definitely do-able.

    6hrs is full time also, if you're looking for financial aid etc.!

    If you're staying the whole summer in Austin, I'd try splitting it into 1 class each summer session

    But it's nice to take one month off, that's what I'm doing/working at my job.
    Sanity, me needs it. lol

    @kaygar09: Would that still be considered full time? That sounds like it might be a better plan since I need as many A's as I can get.
