Next semester's schedule

  1. Nov 11, 2009 #1
    Hi all, I am looking for some advice on my next semester's schedule; currently planning on double majoring in math and physics.

    This semester I am taking...
    Calc 1 (the equivalent of calc 1 and about half of calc II at most universities.)
    Foundations of chem (typical first course in college chem)
    English 101
    Molecular and cell. biology (took this because I initially wasn't sure on my major.)

    I am doing very well this semester, with 18 credit hours. Next semester, I am planning on taking 18 credit hours once again, but with both honors calc II and honors physics I.

    My schedule would look something like this...
    Honors calc II (cover's what is normally calc II, and about half of calc III)
    honors physics I
    english 102
    intro to psych
    intro to philosophy

    My question is basically; should I cut back on maybe one humanities course, bringing my total credit hours down to 15, so that I could could concentrate more on physics and math?

    I'm just worried that I may be biting off more than I can chew. If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Knowing your limits is important. We cannot tell you if it will be too much for you. If you are confident in your time management abilities and study habits, then you should do just fine.

    I will say, though, that the jump from Calculus I to Honors Calculus II will be quite significant. The other courses should be quite manageable.
