The questions in this course are written in a back wards format and are hard to understand what you are actually asking.

The tutorials provided in this course do a good job of providing you with the information needed to pass the class and gain a better understanding of Macroeconomics.

My final course here at Sophia, and the hardest out of 12. It only took about 1 week (total time actively spent) but you will need to keep your book open all the time. Lastly, the second milestone is easily the hardest. So if you get passed the second one, everything else will be easier (but still challenging). Good luck and I'm off to prepare for graduation. Take Care!

The information is good, but as others have said. It seems like the test questions are worded in a way to confuse you not help you answer the question correctly. I'm not saying to give me the answer, but some times the wording is convoluted.

This course was more challenging that I anticipated. Again, I really appreciate the courses Sophia is offering as it is helping me achieve a long overdue goal of attaining my Bachelor.

There is not an option for text-only tutorials, but the video tutorial by instructor Kate includes a transcript. Other than that the class is good; a lot of the material is closely related to the material in Microeconomics so if you did well in that one you will do well in this one.

Great course. I learned a lot, certainly had me thinking. Proctor U was great this time.

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.
