questions for graduate students

For those who are in various Master's degree programs, I would like some input on a couple of questions as I think about some things...

What is your degree program? What is your average reading load in one week for one class? How much fieldwork do you do in a semester?

Of course, for my thesis, I'm reading 30 books and doing hours of work, but that;s not counted officially.

I completed a Master's in International Human Rights Law last year. The reading load for one class was about fourteen hours a week. There wasn't any fieldwork, given the nature of the topic.

M.A. in Special Education, but I'm only doing it part-time since it's designed for teachers who are currently teaching. Reading load is probably 50-100 pages per week, not including any research done for papers or projects. Our practicum is 350 hours in total, but we haven't started counting hours towards that yet.

I'm getting my MA in Russian and Eastern European Studies. The reading load is anywhere from 70-100 pages. There is no fieldwork.

Hi
MS in Higher Education Administration, 2 courses averaging over 100 pages per week with twenty weeks of field work to terminate the requirements. Sorry this is a bit late.
