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 Art History 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 Shawntay I. on August 25, 2016
I truly enjoyed this course! I love Sophia courses. Thank you for the great experience.
by Jane Y. on August 25, 2016
Taking English Comp was difficult in a quick setting. To really involve myself in the writing I would prefer more time to enjoy it.
Sophia replied on August 26, 2016

Hi Jane -- congratulations on completing the course. Yes, this course is designed to be completed in 60 or less. Hopefully you will have future courses with additional writing and composition components to further develop and enjoy this skill. Thank you.

The course milestones seemed to think that I was an art professional and asked questions that were not covered in the course material. In the future, rating artwork should not be part of the exam.
Sophia replied on August 25, 2016

Teri - congratulations on your successful course completion. Questions that ask to rate art are designed to measure the student's ability to apply the material in a critical manner. We hope that students who complete this course gain a new appreciation for art. Thank you for taking time to share your feedback.

This course was not science of fact. this was science of opinion.
Sophia replied on August 25, 2016

Hi Shane, This course certainly tackles topics where students can take one side or another. That said, Sophia does not have an opinion or an agenda relative to the subject of Environmental Science. The course design was determined by the content coverage that is common to the industry, based on an analysis of existing Environmental Science courses at a range of accredited institutions. The course was designed through the consensus of a group of subject matter experts with Masters degrees or PhDs in the subject matter area, who have differing backgrounds and come from all over the United States. The course was reviewed and approved by an independent group of subject matter experts that were not affiliated with Sophia, and this independent panel confirmed the accuracy and appropriateness of the course, relative to the industry standard. We hope to see you again in a future Sophia course. Thank you.

Quite challenging, but learned a lot about the different religions.
by Benita P. on August 23, 2016
Great course; a lot of reading
by Halley H. on August 23, 2016
This course was extremely difficult. Especially if you do not have a math background. They use very simple examples in their tutorials and then the questions on the challenges and tests are extremely difficult. You also are not given ample room to practice the concepts you learn.
Sophia replied on August 23, 2016

Halley - congratulations on your successful course completion! Yes, this is a rigorous college level Algebra course. Each concept in the course is taught by multiple instructors. There is even a written tutorial for each concept. So students have an opportunity to learn these challenging concepts through multiple teachers, not just one. Each tutorial has a practice quiz to help reinforce the learning. As always, our Learning Coaches are here to help you along the way. Congratulations again on your achievement!
