The Advanced Placement course in European History reflects the most recent developments in history curricula at the undergraduate college level.

The course is designed specifically to prepare students for the Advanced Placement (AP) examination. Assessments in this course are aligned to those found on the AP Exam and include, but are not limited to, multiple choice items and both document-based and thematic essays. This course is as rigorous as a college course in terms of subject matter and approach; readings and documents are taken from college-level textbooks, and students should expect daily reading and writing assignments. This course is open to all students; however, students who have a strong interest and proven track record in history are most likely to succeed. (S)
