High School Grades 10-12

AP Human Geography

AP Human Geography is an elective AP course designed to be the equivalent of a college-level Human Geography course. Students analyze the spatial relationships and connectivity of the world through various topics that range from demographics and migration to urban planning and international trade. Students will develop the skills necessary to be global citizens in the 21st Century. In addition to using GIS and GPS, students learn to analyze data distributed by various international organizations. Beyond daily reading and note-taking, students learn to clearly communicate through regular written responses to situation and problems across the globe. This is an excellent introductory course for students who have not previously taken AP courses, and it can be taken in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade. This course is designed to prepare students to take the Advanced Placement test in May. Students may earn college credit through their performance on this assessment.
