AP® World History: Modern is designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester introductory college modern world history course. In this course, students investigate, discuss, and analyze significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from approximately 1200 CE to the present. Students cultivate the skills used by historians when they analyze historical sources, make connections and comparisons, and craft historical arguments. The course is designed around six themes: humans and the environment, cultural developments and interactions, governance, economic systems, social interactions and organization, and technology and innovation. By the end of this course, students will be able to explain the complex challenges of today through the lens of historical events, have improved their analytical and evaluative writing skills, and have gained the necessary skills for success on the AP® World History: Modern Exam in May.
