A great class for any professional. A lot of information seemed to be obvious to me but, it was a nice reminder as to how we present ourselves in various situations. The template for creating a speech was incredibly helpful and well laid out.

Really cool course. The introductory content about the history of public speaking felt a little out of place (I'll never need to know what time period Cicero was prominent in) but this course constantly made me apply what I had learned in realistic scenarios. I speak to large groups very frequently, and small groups or 1-1 almost daily with strangers in my line of work, and even with all the experience I have, I still came away with a lot of new knowledge. Very refreshing! I'm looking forward to my next 3 courses.

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.
