Most of my non-math, non-science classes also had 3 major grades that usually included at least 1 research paper. However, my middle dd has lots and lots of little papers at her college. I sort of think it may have to do with a large university (which is what I attended) versus a small liberal arts college (which is what she's attending), but I don't know. Her school also does timed papers for a final. In other words, you pick up your final exam and you have 48 hours to hand it back and, by then, you need to have answered the question with a 10-page paper (or 3 4-5 page papers).
