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.

great course!

great
by Kathryn F. on September 28, 2022
Overall a pretty easy class. Watching all the videos was not necessary. The tests were the hardest parts so retake them if you need too. Good luck and overall recommend.
by Ashley H. on September 28, 2022
This class is tough but very knowledgeable. Make sure to read and comprehend the material given as the unit challenges aren't much help for the milestones. Don't focus too much on the formulas and focus more on applying what you are reading and you will do fine.
by Agnieszka M. on September 28, 2022
very difficult - loved it
