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.

16+29=45

You need 45 quarter credits to meet your general education requirements. This must include a minimum of 4 quarter credits from each of the following categories: Communication, Humanities, Natural Science and Mathematics, and Social Science. Then you you’re free to choose 29 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 EARLINE H. on January 28, 2023
I really enjoyed the course. I worked at my pace and i was able to grasp information easier and through enough to help me with the test. This is an amazing program.

Good class

very difficult
by Katreena S. on January 28, 2023
I have very little patience when it comes to math courses, but this was straight forward and helpful! I loved having notes and tutorials accessible to me at all times.
by Tanner D. on January 28, 2023
very easy common knowledge such a great refresher course
by Lee P. on January 28, 2023
As a hobbyist trader, I was familiar with a lot of the concepts but filling in lots of information in the bigger picture of market flows was gratifying. At times I would get ahead of myself not thoroughly reading the questions, which would lead to thinking I was doing better on some of the milestones than expected. Pay attention to what the questions are asking. Also know the graphed topics, dealing with graphs harder than 'stonk go up' 'stonk go dow' was genuinely challenging retaining concepts and trying to apply them. The graphs were definitely my weak point. Over all, great course.
