AP WORLD HISTORY:
The AP World History Modern course focuses primarily on the last 800 years of world history, but we'll go as far back as 10,000 years to make sure we have the necessary context to understand the true breadth and depth of humanity's history and how we got to where we are today. Rather than being focused solely on Western/European Civilization, the course approaches the study of our world’s history from a truly global perspective, paying close attention to the ways in which its major societies and cultures have interacted across time and influenced the development of global processes and systems.
This course provides students with the opportunity to prepare for the May AP World History exam, challenging students to stretch toward reaching their individual potential and preparing them for the rigor of future educational experiences at CHS and beyond.
