General Education Requirements for Capella Bachelor's Students

Already have your general education requirements met? Don't forget Sophia courses can also fulfill your elective requirements.

24+21=45

You need 45 quarter credits to meet your general education requirements. This must include a minimum of 6 quarter credits from each of the following four categories: Communication, Humanities, Natural Science and Mathematics, and Social Science. Then you're free to choose 21 additional quarter credits from any of the categories.

Sophia = Extra Credits for Capella Students

If you take two 4.5 credit Sophia courses from the same category, you’ll not only meet that general education category credit requirement, you’ll also have 3 extra credits to apply to the 21 general education credits required for your degree.

Here's an Example

You need 6 Humanities credits. You take Sophia's Introduction to Ethics and Approaches to Studying Religions for a total of 9 credits. 6 credits meet the Humanities credit requirement while the remaining 3 count toward the 21 additional general education credits you need for your degree*. Score!

*Consult with your Academic Advisor about your specific degree plan requirements.

by Joey E. on August 13, 2020
This math class was challenging, but fun at the same time.
by Dixie H. on August 13, 2020
Seems rather rushed and very simplistic to be a real college course. Not enough practice with the numbers, no real world examples. If I was a college, I wouldn't let this course substitute for an accounting course I offered.
by Renita W. on August 13, 2020
This course was great in that it helped me better understand how to build and lead an effective team.
by Coach Geno H. on August 13, 2020
Great Course simple too follow but still pretty difficult so you do learn a ton.
by Fangupo T. on August 13, 2020
It was a nice review from what was taught in the military.

good work
by Pranav N. on August 13, 2020
The course was really fun and easy. The concepts covered were very easy to understand and most of the concepts are really important in understanding the basics. It is a good mix of history telling us about the origins of a concept and how it is used. Also, everyone at the Sophia team were so supportive and prompt in responses and making sure the help is being given. Really enjoyed the whole session. Thanks!
