How many credit hours in each of your didactic semesters?

Recommended Posts

Almost every PA program's website has their curriculum with the # of credits each semester if you're interested in specific programs. As you mentioned, it varies by program. My first semester was 17 last fall, now there's 21 this spring semester. Not sure what you mean by "technically". The credit hours resemble how many hours of the week you are in a class, which always add up correctly. However, most PA classes require a lot more time studying outside of classes than your typical undergraduate class, which is what most people refer to when they say comparing credit hours to undergrad or other programs isn't fair.
