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.

Touchstone took over 2 weeks to be graded. Otherwise it was a good class
by Logan T. on December 5, 2021
Overall, I liked this course, and the content within. However, I found that having different professors grade each paper to be problematic, particularly the informative draft and revision. There’s no way to know exactly what each professors standards for grading the paper are. The feedback offered in some papers is far more extensive than what is offered in others. It may be that it allows the professor to stay as objective as possible, but it seems like different professors interpret the rubric in different ways.

It was hard but great thank you!
by Vincent N. on December 5, 2021
Awesome course, basic knowledge questions if you are into population and environmental conservation. Finished in few hours.
by Morgan S. on December 4, 2021
Harder than Art History 1. The first 2 milestones are difficult but the 3rd and final are pretty easy. Good course.
by Michael C. on December 4, 2021
I loved this course!
by Julie A. on December 4, 2021
Interesting course. Even though it's open book, the questions are phrased in a way that makes you have to think.
by Maria O. on December 4, 2021
Wow this class was hard.
