Learned a lot, wording was tricky and often times lead to overthinking answers. Finished in 5 days, working only a couple hours per day.

Did not care for the topic and found the videos and lectures (content) not to match the exams/quizzes. They were difficult to understand but I did learn so much from the course.

A good course. I had the time so I went through it pretty fast. It took about 2 weeks. Some of the question wording can be tricky so take your time and read the questions carefully.

I have taken a few Sophia courses so far and this was the only one that I've struggled with. The questions asked in the milestones and lessons are not properly answered in the lessons.

Great course. Learned some new concepts/ideas about Ethics that I can apply to my life! Glen's videos were awsome.

I feel that the content given to me contradicted with the questions asked within the quizzes; very trick to where I underestimated my notes vs. the answer choices given.

This course was by far the most intense, but ethical class one must take. Intoduction to Ethics gives you more of an understanding on self-interest, character, how we ought to be, and intent, and so much more. I really loved this class.

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.
