AP Human Geography is an introductory college-level human geography course. Students cultivate their understanding of human geography through data and geographic analyses as they explore topics like patterns and spatial organization, human impacts and interactions with their environment, and spatial processes and societal changes.

AP Human Geography Course Content

The course content is organized into seven commonly taught units, which have been arranged in the following suggested, logical sequence:

■ Unit 1: Thinking Geographically; ■ Unit 2: Population and Migration Patterns and Processes; ■ Unit 3: Cultural Patterns and Processes

■ Unit 4: Political Patterns and Processes; ■ Unit 5: Agriculture and Rural Land-Use Patterns and Processes; ■ Unit 6: Cities and Urban Land-Use Patterns and Processes ■ Unit 7: Industrial and Economic Development Patterns and Processes

Each unit is broken down into teachable segments called topics. In addition, the following big ideas serve as the foundation of the course, enabling students to create meaningful connections among concepts and develop deeper conceptual understanding:

■ Big Idea 1: Patterns and Spatial Organization

■ Big Idea 2: Impacts and Interactions

■ Big Idea 3: Spatial Process and Societal Change
