While there is never a guarantee that you’ll be able to complete a course quickly--this depends on many factors, particularly how much time you are able to devote--here is a list of courses that StraighterLine students often complete in a month or less:
This course provides a solid introduction for students who are new to the branch of cultural anthropology. This course is commonly taken for humanities and/or social science gen ed credit.
This course focuses on the US prior to 1861. Students learn about European exploration and colonization of the New World and examine the impact on Europe, Africa, and the young United States.

This course provides students with a comprehensive overview of cultural religious phenomena in a global world. This is a popular course for students needing humanities credits.
This course is a critical introduction to the field of philosophical inquiry. It examines the history of Western thought, from the famous Greek philosophers up to cutting-edge intellectuals of today.
Our newly revamped course provides an excellent in-depth approach to various writing genres, it does require students to write a selection of essays including a comprehensive research paper. Due to the amount of writing and qualitative feedback, this course may require some additional time to complete successfully.
Similar to ENG101, this course requires students to write a minimum number of essays. In addition, students must read and write about the novel Frankenstein, which can add some time for successful completion.
A very popular course, BUS105 requires students to use a professional tone to write a selection of business-style documents, all of which are graded by subject-matter experts.
In addition, the science lab courses (Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, Physics) will often require additional time for completing the experiments and having your lab work graded.
