What are the easiest & fastest Sophia courses out of this list?
#1
I have to finish 18 elective credits with UMGC and the below courses don't have touchstones and are transferrable to my school. Out of all listed, which 6 courses would be my best option to take that are easiest and fastest? I will be taking these alongside 2 upper level courses at UMGC so I am trying to make it as painless as possible to get my electives needed to graduate. Thank you!

Art History I
Art History II
Visual Communications
Conflict Resolution
Introduction to Ethics
Introduction to Business
Principles of Finance
Project Management
U.S. History I
U.S. History II
Environmental Science
Human Biology
Introduction to Relational Databases
Introduction to Web Development

I got environmental science done in about three days. If you have more free time, it may take less than that.

These courses I did which were pretty easy
Environmental Science
Visual Communications
Introduction to Business
Introduction to Ethics

These courses I didn't do though I hear are pretty easy
Art History I
Art History II

Introduction to Web Development would be a breeze if you already have the css/html knowledge. I couldn't click through fast enough from lesson to lesson.

I recently completed Art 1, Ethics, Project Management, Human Bio, US History. All were fast, Human Bio was probably more challenging than the others, but still fast enough. Macroeconomics was quick.

Cool, you got through those courses quickly.  I had trouble with U.S. History I because so many questions required multiple answers.

Project Management was fast for me though I hear some have trouble with it.

Learner Over-Look... You really shouldn't be looking for "easiest, fastest", you need to see which courses interest you. If the course is easy/fast for one person, it may not be for another because the course may be a bore and a slog to go through. So, ask yourself what subjects out of those are interesting over the others... You may want courses that overlap, or not, it's all personal preference.

If I had a choice, these are the ones that interest me the most.. pick yours...

This is so true.  I enjoyed Environmental Science, so it was fast.  US History II wasn’t necessarily any harder, it’s just a very tough subject for me.  Too many names and dates to remember.   I fully “understand” it, but my mind wanders with the details.  So that one was slow for me.   ZZZzzzzz…

Yep that makes sense! I don't think I will like US History and I am not sure if I will like Art History although everyone says it's easy. I just wasn't sure if any of the courses I listed were truly difficult regardless of your interest in them. Thank you!

On the plus side, it’s all open book, so retaining the info isn’t super important.  Wink
