Course Description
The purpose of the 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 employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human social organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their science and practice.
Course Objectives
The goal is for students to begin to use the fundamental perspectives (spatial and ecological), themes (location, place, human–environment interaction, movement, and regions), and concepts (perception, change, pattern/association, systems, and scale) of geography to study the human systems of culture (including religion and language), politics, economics, and population.
