AP Human Geography

This college level course is designed to introduce students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alterations of the 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 Geographic Standards (2012).


Students who enroll in AP courses must take the end-of-course AP exam. The cost of this exam is paid for by ACPS. Additionally, students will take the Virginia Department of Education World Geography end-of-course SOL.
