How many hours per week will the coursework take?
This depends largely on your own interests and dedication to the course. We ask that all students read the lecture and assigned readings and post at least once per week in the class discussion; this should take about 2 hours per week. Other commitments include submitting peer critiques and participating in (or watching) video conferences. Finally, most students wish to submit all major writing assignments for the class in order to receive instructor feedback, and here the time commitment is highly variable. Some students write only on the weekends, while others write or revise for some time each day to produce these works. Still others join the course with essays already written. Your writing time is a large part of the time commitment, and it is up to you to determine how much writing time you will need in order to produce pieces for critique.
