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 Lydia H. on April 8, 2021
great course. enjoyed the teacher... some questions in the milestones are confusing, you just have to pay close attention to details. Besides that, the tests were fairly easy because you are given all the formulas to the accounting problems. i feel like i learned a lot from this class!
by Larry F. on April 8, 2021
very challenging! but it was fun to learn
by Brandon R. on April 8, 2021
I spent an entire day and a half reading, reading, and more reading. The challenges are tricky but as long as you take your time you should be good.

educative
by Shannon S. on April 8, 2021
This was an interesting class. I enjoyed it. I learned a lot of things I never knew I might need. Please make sure to read everything carefully. The answers are in the studying!
by Krissy S. on April 8, 2021
This course was very challenging but informative. I learned a lot. It is definitely doable as long as you follow the course work and study it.
