Our students love the freedom, flexibility and support we offer. See what they're saying about Sophia's courses.

by Charity J. on July 15, 2024
This course was ... ok. The content and challenges were good. I learned a few things and it was interesting to read some things I didnt know. The touchstones were too much and my grader was quite slow. This course stressed me out. I can't lie and pretend it was a nice experience. This was my 2nd worst course behind critical thinking.
by Charity J. on July 15, 2024
The course was ok. I did learn things that were interesting. I think the touchstones were A bit much and I didn't enjoy that at all.
by Charity J. on July 15, 2024
This was my favorite course out of the ones I had to take. I learned a good bit. It wasn't overwhelming or confusing. I enjoyed. Best of all.. didn't have to write a freaking paper!
