As a professor I was wondering what others have experienced at the College/University regarding credit hours/compensation for teaching MA level vs BA level courses. This is for a Psychology department...For example, a 3-credit BA course counts towards 3 credit hours of instruction. A 3-credit MA course may count at 3 credit hours or double (6-credit hours) depending on enrollment. This policy is changing and I am wondering what policies may be in pace elsewhere for comparison. In relation to this - how are professors compensated for mentoring MA thesis students?
Thanks in advance for any feedback that would be helpful while drafting our policy.
