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.

This class is almost identical to conflict resolution. If you have taken that class this one is literally a walk in the park. Some of the questions and situations are even the same!
by Levett M. on July 26, 2021
This course is hard, it takes time to fully understand the materials. The tutorials are very helpful and take notes especially about the formulas. Overall great course.
by FRANCK STEPHANE K. on July 26, 2021
very good material to refresh my mind
by tonita c. on July 26, 2021
this course was very hard but if you take good notes you should do fine.

by Amanda M. on July 26, 2021
Easy and very straightforward.
by Viktorya A. on July 26, 2021
Very difficult course if you do not have a math/science background
by Micah M. on July 26, 2021
For a college level class I expected more professionalism from the professors curriculum. There were several times where opinions of the professor were the correct answer. “It’s wrong that a factory-farmed chicken spends its entire life in an 8 1/2 x 11-inch space” and “Factory farming should be abolished because it condemns chickens to short, miserable lives”.... Although your opinion may be valid, it is something that should be left out of college factual material...P.S. If you want to share opinions so bad, I think Chicken tastes great and I will forever eat nothing but meat. FRIED CHICKEN!
