Advanced Placement Human Geography is an introductory college course in human geography. The exam assumes that you have taken the equivalent of one semester of college-level preparation, with the understanding that at Marion County High School, this is a full-year course. The course correlates to a typical introductory college course, whose purpose is to introduce you to a systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use and alteration of Earth's surface. You will look spatially at the Earth to analyze human organization of space and the environmental consequences of their decisions. You will be looking for patterns across the cultural landscape, trying to identify trends and anticipate future phenomena. You will also explore different methods and tools geographers use in their science and practice.
