I really enjoyed this course.

Art History 2 took longer than 1 but I really learned a lot from it. My interest in history helped understand this class a little more.
by Breck K. on February 22, 2021
The course was incredibly interesting and I am excited to apply all that I've learned to critiquing and enjoying art. BUT, it was insanely note intense. I had to take 36 full-sized typewritten pages of notes to cover all of the information. I think they tried to push way too many styles together into one course, making it to where it was hard to retain anything you learned because in 6 minutes you've already moved on to a new style. It was a useful overall art course though, giving you a few insights into hundreds of artists and dozens of styles in a short period.

This class was very detailed and as long as you read each section you'll do fine on the tests. Very interesting class overall.

Surprised I did better than I expected in this class. I always hated art, not my forte. Good course overall, and use the tutorials!

FAQ

  • Q: What does "Try it for Free" mean?

    A: The Free Trial allows you to access the course of your choice, or multiple courses. It gives you access to the first unit ("Challenge 1") in the course. This will let you meet the course instructors, sample the instructional content, and answer a set of assessment questions in the Challenge. You can also read the Student Guide and watch an Orientation Video to learn more about the course format, requirements, and resources.

    Any work you complete in the Free Trial is saved, so if you decide to register, you do not need to repeat it. Of course, we also let you reset it and start over if you wish.

  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?

Currently, our Foundations of English Composition, English Composition I, and Public Speaking courses contain Touchstones.

  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?

  • Q: Are the tests proctored?

    A: Sophia courses utilize keyboard biometrics as an alternative to proctoring. No webcam is needed for a Sophia course.

  • Q: I'm taking a course where I have to submit Touchstones. How long does it take for my Touchstone to be graded once it's submitted?

    A: We provide our faculty graders with up to 7 business days to grade a Touchstone. The actual time may vary based on volume and grader capacity.
