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.

Course Structure:

The AP Human Geography course is organized around seven major topics, one of which will be examined during each day of the class.

Geography: Its Nature and Perspectives

Population and Migration

Cultural Patterns and Processes

Political Organization of Space

Agriculture, Food Production, and Rural Land Use

Industrialization and Economic Development

Cities and Urban Land Use

Course Materials: 

This course will utilize the Barron's AP Human Geography book to aid the student in becoming familiar with each topic area. Furthermore, media reports of current events will be utilized to emphasis the practical application of the theoretical knowledge that students gain from this course.
