My husband is going back for his PhD. He will work his current full time job AND go to school part-time. I want him to be happy, and I'm trying so hard to be supportive, but I'm so scared he'll hardly have any time for me and our daughter anymore. This will last at least 7 years! Does anyone know about how much time PhD students usually spend on school stuff in any given week? I'm worried it's a LOT. Thank you!Answer Question

I spend about 10 hours a week. I am taking one doctorate course at a time. I also work full time. It really depends on the program though and how far the student is in it. I know once I get to my dissertation it will be much more time consuming. Right now I am still in the regular course work. No matter how much time it takes it will be so worth it for your husband and your family.
