AP Human Geography

A full year course geared toward the college-bound student. AP Human Geography course is to introduce students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth’s surface. Students learn to employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human socioeconomic organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their research and applications. Students will interpret maps and analyze geospatial data, understand and explain the implications of associations and networks among phenomena in places, recognize and interpret the relationships among patterns and processes at different scales of analysis, define regions and evaluate the regionalization process, and characterize and analyze changing interconnections among places. Students receiving a passing score on the AP test in May will earn three college credits.

Students who have a great interest in current events, science, maps, and history. This class takes at least one hour every day of study, which can be manageable but demanding. For incoming Freshmen this is a great introduction to the rigor of Advanced Placement classes. For upperclassmen this class is a great review of many Advanced Placement classes, since ideals of history, environmental science, mathematics, and economics are applied.

Since Human Geography is a wide encompassing discipline it will help prepare many students for multiple fields of study. Also students will be able to prepare for the AP test and possibly receive college credit.
