ABOUT AP HUG
AP Human Geography is a year-long course that focuses on the distribution, processes, and effects of human population on the planet. The course is designed to meet or exceed the experience of an introductory one-semester college human geography course. The course provides a systematic study of human geography, including the following topics outlined in the most recent course description published by the College Board: Geography: Its Nature and Perspective, Population, Cultural Patterns and Processes, Political Organization of Space, Agricultural and Rural Land Use, Industrialization and Economic Development, Cities and Urban Land Use.
This course examines the economy of the United States. Particular attention is paid to the development of the United States capitalism by contrasting it with other economic systems used in the world. During the coverage of this course, the student will be exposed to major concepts of both macro and micro economics.
