Relative to the courses I took in A&S, the Peabody classes were appreciably more oriented towards in-class discussions, small group projects and papers. It just seemed like Peabody was more collaborative, whereas A&S was more independent. In terms of workload, I felt like my courses through Peabody had more small, consistent assignments, whereas in A&S, I tended to have less frequent and larger assignments. For example, I had an HOD class where my grade might have been comprised of several short (3-4 page) papers, a few projects and a few tests, whereas an Econ class might've been comprised of three exams and a hw/quiz grade. I felt like the A&S classes were a little more stressful because each exam/paper/project was typically worth a larger percentage of my grade than an exam/paper/project from a Peabody class.
