Questions are phrased awkwardly at times, but overall a concise explanation of the times.

The course was a great alternative to taking the history class for my general ed requirements. Getting the official transcript has taken a bit longer than the suggested 2 days that the message says after course completion

This is a good course. It is a bit bias nut still informing.

Tough course, but does a great job covering a lot of content with a large focus on race and politics.

This course was great. I learned so much that I didn't learn in my 10ish years of learning history. It was very enlightening. I do wish the practice milestones did more to help one study for the milestone, but they were a help overall.

The author of the text has a clear agenda in mind. It seems to me, based on the amount of time dedicated to certain aspects of American history, and the complete avoidance of others, that the focus is on establishing the United States as a deeply flawed, contradictory, and evil entity without legitimacy or moral standing. I feel that much of what was covered was done so through a modern liberal lens and not an objective lens of the facts. There are many conclusions drawn that are unsubstantiated with facts and many opinions given that are delivered as facts. I would challenge Sophia to adopt a more objective perspective when teaching history and leave the interpretation of the facts to the student.

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.
