and who will work closely with you. The faculty at Husson emphasize teaching,
and they will provide as much time as you need to assure you are successful in

At Husson you can switch programs with no or very little loss of credits earned

in a number of fields within business in the first two years. You can use this
experience to help you choose what area you really want to get your degree in.

Yes. Many students have part time jobs and carry full course loads. You will
have to decide how much time you can spend on a job, which will be above and
beyond your classes and homework. The main thing is to do well in your classes.
You may choose to pursue an internship at Husson, in which case you can work
at a job, get paid, and get academic credit for it all. We try hard to arrange
your class schedule around any employment you might have.
8. How much will I have to study outside of class?
Two to three hours out of class for each hour in class is a very rough guide.
It varies so much from student to student. Some will want to spend more than
this—some less. It also depends heavily on the particular course. Some courses
require a lot more homework than others.

You will take five different classes each semester. In the first semester most
students take Algebra, English, Introduction to Business, Micro-computing and

of Business, Speech, Finite Math, Literature, and History. After that you take
largely business oriented courses in management, finance, marketing, economics,
and so on.

About 15 hours. The typical student spends three hours in three different classes
which run Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and then three hours in two other
classes which run Tuesdays and Thursdays.
11. Will I be able to do an internship?
About 25% of our students take one or more internships. Each internship is worth
3 credits toward the 120 credits required for graduation. Often internships lead
to jobs after graduation.
