Find out what it's like to take online courses at Capella by taking a free, non-graded mini course. Our current students help design this mini course to ensure that you get an accurate impression of the Capella experience. Plan to spend 7-9 hours on course activities for the one-week trial.
- Select this option if you're interested in a bachelor's program
- Participate with 75-100 other professionals interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
Plan ahead to get the most out of your mini course. We recommend setting aside 1 to 2 hours each day for course activities.
This course includes the type of readings, discussions, and assignments that are part of all Capella courses.
You'll walk through the process of submitting a short academic paper — from researching a current issue related to your area of professional interest, to engaging in a discussion with your classmates — without the pressure of being graded. All course materials for the mini course are included for free.
A course facilitator is available to answer questions and help you navigate the courseroom. The mini course is offered twice a month.
Your mini course experience will include:
|Suggested Workload Schedule|
|Monday||Courseroom Tour, Introductions, Required Reading & Videos|
|Tuesday||Profession-Specific Article Research|
|Wednesday-Friday||Profession-Specific Article Discussion|
|Friday-Sunday||Assignment: Position Paper|
|Sunday||Optional: Position Paper Discussion|
To get the most out of your experience, we recommend you participate as fully as possible. The mini course provides a great tutorial to familiarize yourself with Capella’s approach to online learning and helps prepare you to be successful in your Capella courses.
