Summer school at UBC

Does anyone know what a typical schedule at UBC looks like during the summer session? I know each term runs for approximately 6 weeks. I have no idea though how many courses we are allowed to take during each term (1? 2?) or how many hours of lecture time there are per day during the summer (versus the usual 3 hours/day during winter session). Also, would you recommend squeezing in two courses in one term or would that be too much? Is the workload very heavy for each course? Lastly, does summer session offer a variety of courses since I'm planning to take two literature courses to fulfill my literature requirements for Bachelor of Arts.

I've never done it myself, but I think two courses may be pushing it. It depends how difficult they are, and how many work shifts you're willing to sacrifice to make time for them.
