College: How many hours do you spend studying? - September 13th 2016, 09:08 PM

What's your major?
How many hours are you taking?
What's your GPA?
How many hours do you study/day on average (ie#hrs week/7), this includes homework, test preparation, labs, etc.?

Just curious to see how this scales. I know the traditional argument is 3 hrs/credit unit, but I've never met anyone who does this.

I'll answer for when I was still in college
Early Childhood Education
I normally took 12-15 credit hours (4-5 classes)
My GPA was usually over a 3.0 (forgot what I graduated with)
I had a really project heavy major so I'd usually spend at least 10 hours a week on homework, sometimes up to 20. We also had to do (at least) 15 volunteer hours a semester. This is excluding finals time.

Can I still answer if I just graduated? I could do for last semester

Major: sociology
Hours: i took 15 credits or 5 classes 3 credits eaxh (15 hours)
My gpa was 3.78 i believe. Did not check the most updated though.
The hours I spent on schoolwork outside of classes would vary from semester to semester and even within a single semester, there would be busier times than others. I don't know the average but it can range from 5-30 hours a week including weekends
I'm not even counting transportation to and from school and to and from my volunteer placement

Major: Public health
Hours: I range between 12, 15, and 18 credit hours. Last semester I took 19 credit hours, this semester 18.
GPA: 3.93.
Study time: Honestly it ranges. Last semester I'd spend 1-2 hours a week just on one class and one semester I'd spend up to 3 on another. If a class has take home tests I honestly don't study as much for it, as is the case for many of my classes this semester.

Major: Human services
Credits: 16 usually (4 classes)
GPA: 3.84
Hours studying: Usually 1-2 hours per week per class if I don't have any projects due. I do have to write a lot of essays though for my classes instead of tests so it can vary. We are also required to intern 12 hours each week.

And here you are living, despite it all.
