AP Psychology

AP Psychology is designed to introduce students to the systematic and scientific study of human behavior. Students will explore the psychological concepts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields of psychology, as well as the ethics and methods psychologists use in their science and practice. AP Psychology is an elective course intended for students in grades 11 and 12. While not mandatory, it is suggested that students either enroll in or complete Advanced Biology and Statistics prior to or in conjunction with AP Psychology. 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.
