Very good course. Learned a lot about the environment, ecosystems, impacts of over population. It will certainly help me to become even more responsible towards the world we are living in.

The beginning of this course is amazing and then unit 4 just hits you hard. It is like when you have a first child who is an angel so you have a second child who is crazy in a hand basket...false pretenses. That is how this course was!
Sophia replied on May 3, 2018

Melissa -- congratulations on your course completion! Yes, this course builds up as it progresses unit by unit, as many college courses do. As always, our team is here to help when students get stumped on a question or a concept. We hope to see you in a future Sophia course. Thank you!

Essentially, I did what I was supposed to do pass the course.But if I had to recommend it to anyone I wouldn't , I've had to buy a book to accompany the information. I just felt it was crammed. This is not my style of learning a all.

I learned a lot, but make sure to take a lot of notes. There are a lot of things to remember. I barely passed the final, but I passed.

FAQ

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for tuition, such as financial aid or military benefits?
    A: Sophia courses are not eligible for most third party payment methods, and must be paid for by credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers both full and partial payment plans as part of the registration process.
  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments. Sophia’s English Composition I, Foundations of English Composition, and Public Speaking courses also include written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.
  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?
    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.
