This course helped in the development of an essay. It taught me how to structure my paper to get your point across effectively. This course has further developed my writing skills.

This was a great refresher course for me!
by Gregory F. on July 15, 2019
This was the first Sophia course I have taken. The content was easy to follow and understand. The touchstones were challenging and I was given great feedback on the results.
by Mary P. on July 14, 2019
This course has helped me learn a lot about essay writing given it has been 20 years since I've last had to write one of these. I like the touchstone's that were given because it gave me a chance to think critically and build on my writing skills.

Fantastic course.
by Crystal A. on July 12, 2019
Very good class to take if you have been out of school as long as I have. I definitely needed to brush up on the rules of grammar. There are 3 essays you have to write in addition to taking the milestones. So be prepared for that. I was looking for a more in depth English class, so I think I will check into the other English class Sophia has and see if that will give me more of what I was looking for.
by Lori A. on June 27, 2019
It is a great class if English Comp is your thing.


  • 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.
