    I don't think anyone could really give you a personalized answer for that. When I took my master's program, I was told to expect to work 8 to 10 hours a per class. I read everything I was supposed to read and completed every single assignment with a good grade but only spent about 2-3 hours a week on each class.

    It will depend on how many classes you take and how quickly you are able to read and complete the work. I just signed up for my PhD program and know that at least 1.5 hours will be spent online each week as they have an actual classroom component that must be completed.
