Kate was an excellent instructor with great video and written explanations. This course was a lot of fun and I learned a lot from it.

Really tough class, perhaps the hardest I've taken at Sophia, but I felt like I learned a lot.

I would prefer that answer choices were more appropriate/clear, and some of the quiz questions included ;incorrect answers. I submitted those for review.
by Mario H. on August 4, 2017
I thought it was interesting, and I learned a lot of vocabulary. I struggle with not having human interaction, so my understanding could have been better. Ultimately though, my biggest issue with this class was that the questions seemed like they were designed to confuse me. I'm just barely learning this stuff, so tricky questions only succeed in making me doubt what I learned, which results in me no longer trusting my understanding of the subject. It was not terrible though.

Great course with great instruction.
by Robert W. on May 26, 2017
This was the toughest course of the four I've taken to date. half way through I wasn't sure I would pass but it turns out the 2nd and 3rd units have a lot of review and the last unit was not as tough as the title made it out to be. A lot of good knowledge learned, on to Macro!

Well structured and intuitive.


  • 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.
