AP Human Geography Flashcards
Simply put, human geography is the study of people and their lifestyles, and the effects of humans on the earth and its geography. It’s a complex topic, but a fascinating one. If you’re a student who finds yourself interested in the topic and wants a challenging course of study, the Advanced Placement Human Geography course is an option.
The Advanced Placement Human Geography course is an exploration of how patterns and processes have shaped the way people understand, use, and change the planet. It includes the study of tools that geographers use as they research various topics and how those tools are used.
Also known as AP Human Geography, this course is an option for high school students who want a challenging course that helps them to gain college credit and potentially moves them into more complex course work as they enter college. The course is similar to an introductory college-level human geography course. As an AP course, it may be more difficult and complex than courses you’d otherwise encounter in high school, and you’ll likely want to find study aids to help make learning a bit easier.
