I would not say this course was overly difficult but it was challenging. It will be very helpful in my career where we deal with ethical decisions every day.

I had mixed feelings about this course, it is challenging in the sense that if you have a certain way of viewing things and don't fully understand the material you are on then it gets a little difficult to pick the correct answers without your view getting in the way. On the other hand I did learn a lot and half of the course was common sense. Overall I would say it was a good course to take online just challenging.

great job holding attention, even as the concepts were similar.

The way some of the questions were written were hard to understand and could have been taken in an entirely different context. The questions should be clearer and straight to the point.

I learned a lot and appreciated the relevance to modern times. There were some tricky/inconsistent Q&A's but Sophia was so receptive to correcting them. I highly recommend this course!

Glenn Kuehn presented topics that can surely very dry and almost boring in a way that was interesting, engaging and promoted daily thought about ethics for me. Nice course!

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.
