What is the workload?

This is a 3-credit college-level course, so it requires a serious time commitment. It is expected that each module will take approximately 7–10 hours per week in the spring, summer 10-week, and fall sessions and twice that time in the summer term 1 and term 2 condensed sessions. Here is an approximate breakdown:

  • Listening to audio annotated slide presentations and completing the quizzes:
    • 2-3 hours/week in spring, summer 10-week, and fall sessions
    • 4-6 hours/week in the summer term 1 and term 2 sessions
  • Completing pre-lab homework assignments and additional outside readings:
    • 2-3 hours/week in spring, summer 10-week, and fall sessions
    • 4-6 hours/week in the summer term 1 and term 2 sessions
  • Preparing a lab report or presentation with results of the lab, and completing post-lab reflections:
    • 3-4 hours/week in spring, summer 10-week, and fall sessions
    • 6-8 hours/week in the summer term 1 and term 2 sessions
