Hours per week

A photo of OscarUK OscarUK
Out of curiosity, how many hours per week of classes/lectures/seminars is in your typical Arts program (For example I'll be majoring in PolSci)? Just wanted to see the comparison to here in the UK.

No, but here's a typical engineering schedule for chem. eng. at the University of Waterloo.
It's from 2007.
The reason for posting this is simple: compared to this, ANY program you choose will have less class per week.

Thanks but I was more looking for hours for Arts students, as you may/may not know humanities course funding in the UK has been slashed in recent years to the point where I know many people studying history, psychology, even business who have around 4-5 hours a week total. Was just wondering how this compared to abroad as I reckon that is pretty poor, especially with fee's here tripling next year.

15 hours a week is typical (5 classes at 3 hours a week assuming no tutorials or labs)
