CMBalla8 started following How many credit hours can I take before I overload myself?
CMBalla8 posted a topic in Library SciencesHey all, So here's my thing. I'm starting the dual master's degree program at Indiana University this fall, MIS and MLS. The degree program is 54 credit hours. I'd really, REALLY like to get it done in 2 years instead of 3. So I'm wondering how many credit hours I should take each semester. I'm not opposed to taking summer classes, but I'd like to limit the amount I have. I'm mostly wondering if 12 credit hours is too many to take first semester. I have a fellowship, so I'll be working 19 hours a week as well. To be fair, I'm not afraid of a challenge. I took 15 credits a semester all through undergrad while working 20 hours a week. I just want to make sure I don't burn myself out too quickly in grad school. Any advice? Is 12 credits a semester too much? Should I stick with 9 and just load up on summer classes? Any and all advice would be helpful :) thanks in advance!
