Hi, I'm pursing a B.S. of electrical engineering at my university at the moment. I have like 21 credits which I can freely choose which is a lot. I wanted to take courses that would be required of me if I were to pursue a M.S. in electrical engineering so that way if I ever do finish pursing my masters I would have less classes to take. My parents are only going to support me for 3 years to earn my bachelors in 3 years and then I'm on my own for my masters in which case I will have to work first to have enough money to finish pursuing my masters. Any who when I looked at the course requirements it was only 27 credits which typically 9 credits per semester are taken. Does this mean that graduate courses are harder and take more time and 9 is the reasonable amount? Right now I'm taking 19 credits a semester for my undergrad and it's fine. 9 seems so small and am wondering if this is because it's harder and 9 is a lot (even though it seems small compared to me) or people typically only take 9 credits semester because they are working full time as well or whatever.
