Bryan’s Answer

Average classes were 2-4 per day, but number of hours of classes per day may be a better way to look at it.  It helped me to evenly distribute the classes during the week if I could, but a long class can work fine as long as you allow yourself enough time.  The big chunks of time are not hard to handle but can make the information seem compressed if you get too much at once as you can in a 3h class that meets once per week for 3h.  Also, if you don't have a class again for another week, you may have to refresh your memory so you can remember where  you left off.

Elizabeth,

In college, if you attend every day, and carry 15 hours (5 classes) I would have 3 on M/W/F and two on Tue/Thurs. Classes that meet 3x a week would be about an hour each, whereas the others were about an hour and a half each. A lot depends on the availability of the classes you want/need. It's fairly easy as a freshman, as there are many sections of English, History, Algebra, etc. But in the upper class years, when you need something like "The political implications of Roe v. Wade" you will find that whenever it is offered, you will take it, even if that means 6-9 on Monday EVENING.


If you are attending a large campus, you will want to check the locations of the classes, so you don't find yourself having to hustle clear across campus to get to your next class!


I want to encourage you to take advantage of the time during the day when you are not in class. I found that I could do most of my assignments during that time, keeping my evenings and weekends free for work and/or social life.

Brittany’s Answer

Hello Elizabeth, The number of classes you would typically have in a day if your are referring to college, would soley depend on the four following things:

  1. Class Rank Status- are you a freshman, a sophomore, junior or a senior ?
  2. Major- Your major will determine what your class load will look like.
  3. Student Time-Whether or not you are a part time or a full time student.
  4. Class Availability-What classes are available and and at what given times.

Unfortunately, There would be no general off the brain way of knowing how many classes you typically have in a day due to the lack of information from the factors above. The factors above are basically your blue print in finding out typically how many classes you would generally have in a day. The factors above all range differently one from another. I will give you an example in knowing based off of the four factors above.

Example:

A freshman student who is full time and majors in psychology may have four or five classes a day, while a senior student who is part time and majors in communications may have only two classes a day.

As you can see from the example, you would basically need to account for all the factors above to determine how many classes you would typically have in a day. Hope this was helpful! Good luck!

Roger’s Answer

You will typically have 2 - 4 classes a day. That's it. (Geez, in high school, you have 6 or 7 classes a day ! College is EASY.) I recommend taking 18 units. Colleges usually charge the same amount of money for 12 - 18 units. So, get your money's worth by taking 18 units and you can put yourself in a position to graduate college early.... or you can coast during your senior year and take advantage of internships. And, mix up your college schedule by taking morning classes, early afternoon classes, and one or two night classes that meet once a week. Try to avoid classes on Thursday evening to Sunday night. That is your time to enjoy the social aspect of college -- Go to parties, take weekend trips, go to College Football games, or visit Mom & Dad.
