Course Loads per Semester
I tell all new students that if they are working 20 hours or more, they should only take 2 courses because 3 will be too much. If they are going to go full time (3 courses), then they may want to take a 300 level class for graduate credit in their first term (to help with the transition to grad school). This is especially true for Medievalists and Europeanists since we offer less at the 400 level.
