I'm just curious here....

So, most/all of my classes are 3/4000 level and I'm finding that the reading load runs about 100pages/class/week.

I guess I should add that this is for a Social Science related major.

Is this average?

post your reading load/major below....

Yowza. That's typical for grad school, for sure, but I don't remember reading that much as an UG (then again, I didn't actually read most of what was required in UG; can't get away with not-reading in grad school).

Reading @100 pages per week for one class; the other varies wildly; reading related to my Thesis also varies greatly; not looking forward to the reading I'll have to do for Comps (maybe do those during the summer.....).

I used to help do digital books for students with disabilities. It wasn't uncommon to see women's studies majors with 10-15 books to read before the mid-term.

That sounds like what I had. I was a psychology undergrad.
