AP Human Geography

Prerequisite: Literature I and Writing I (previously or concurrently) (As recommended by AP, students must be able to read college-level texts and write grammatically correct, complete sentences.)

Course Description: The AP Human Geography course is equivalent to an introductory college-level course in human geography. The course introduces students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth’s surface. Students employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine socioeconomic organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their research and applications. The curriculum reflects the goals of the National Geography Standards and relies heavily on college-level texts, primary source documents, and outside readings. If Secondary I students want to enroll in AP Human Geography, they need to meet a set of criteria and have a signed letter from parents. This course fulfills the World Geography graduation requirement.
