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.

Reviews

Our students love the freedom, flexibility and support we offer. See what they're saying about Sophia's courses.

by Patricia D. on March 24, 2017
Instructors were great. Content was very interesting. Some of the test questions had misleading, and vague answers. Even when "report a problem with this question" was used, some of the responses didn't make sense. Overall, the course was excellent.
by Amber N. on March 23, 2017
Was a very challenging class in this format.
by Joshua J. on March 23, 2017
Great course. Kept me interested!
by Gabriel E. on March 23, 2017
I really liked the setup of the course. The website design and process was really easy to understand and navigate. The work was nicely divided and encouraged me to take on manageable tasks that quickly added up to the completion of the course.
by NICOLE P. on March 23, 2017
This is a difficult and time consuming course for a gen ed for a nursing degree.
Sophia replied on March 23, 2017

Congratulations Nicole on your successful course completion. Introduction to Art History is a fulfilling course for many learners, albeit a challenging subject. We offer two other Humanities courses that may help meet the requirements for nursing programs: Approaches to Studying Religions, and Introduction to Ethics. Thank you for studying with Sophia and best wishes from our team!

Super easy! Course tutorials are your best friend.
by Kamryn M. on March 21, 2017
Informative, quick, and easy enough. I wish more free courses were available to help speed up my education; money is the hardest part of continuing my education in a timely manner!
