This course was very difficult at some points. However, I managed to pass it, and the course was quite interesting, so I would give it 4 stars.

I found it very difficult to try and memorize things that I can't pronounce, but I loved learning the history and I learned a lot.

A very enjoyable course! It provided a detailed and expansive history of art, along with a good understanding of how one movement influences the next. It might have been helpful to have a comprehensive timeline for reference, to be able to see all movements along a single timeline. It might have also been nice to have a single listing of notable artists within each period. I know those materials are available elsewhere on the web, but I'm always looking for helpful resources that I can take away from each course and store for later reference.

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.
