One of the Most Widely Used AP Human Geography Curriculums

Human Geography for the AP® Course teaches students in Grades 9–12 to appreciate the diversity of people, places, and cultures that shape our world, while preparing them for success on the AP exam and in college and careers.

Through an exclusive partnership with Wiley, our AP Human Geography curriculum gives students geographic context so they learn to think critically about local, national, regional, and global issues. The geographic concepts they will learn allow students to see the world as geographers do.
