This course was excellent. It did contain alot of information. The final milestone was easy and the answers were pretty easy to find. The concepts were easy to understand. The only drawback I had with the course was the videos wouldn't play for a majority of the final milestone. i definitely recommend this course.

Fascinating course that really got me thinking more and more about the kind of food I eat. I'm already living in a really mindful household of mainly vegetarian habits, but this has been quite eye opening.

It was rough but I learned a lot. I am very thankful for people like Matt. Who hung in there and I drove him NUTS. He stuck it out with me and made sure I care for to the fullest. Emotional this was my last class. I can now apply for my paper the 32 year long degree I call my bachelor degree. Again, thank you for giving me what I needed when I needed it to cross this threshold. GOD bless and always remain safe.....

There should be more definitions and when a questions is missed, there is no explanation as to why like on the other courses I have taken. It is very helpful for when I don't understand.

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.
