The Advanced Placement Human Geography course reflects the content of a typical college level survey introductory course in human geography. Through the five goals of the course, students will refine their analytical and problem solving skills using creative and critical thinking to develop abilities to:
• Use and think about maps and spatial data.
• Understand and interpret the implications of associations among phenomena in places.
• Recognize and interpret at different scales the relationships among patterns and processes.
• Define regions and evaluate the regionalization process.
• Characterize and analyze changing interconnections among places.

These skills will be practiced and mastered through the investigation of seven interdependent units of study as outlined
by the College Board Advanced Placement Human Geography course description. Throughout these units, students will
examine current trends in geography as well as geography related careers.
