AP® European History is designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester introductory college European history course. In this course, students investigate, discuss, and analyze significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in four historical periods from approximately 1450 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analysis of historical evidence, contextualization, comparison, causation, change and continuity over time, and argument development. The course is designed around six themes that students explore throughout the year in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: interaction between Europe and the world, poverty and prosperity, objective knowledge and subjective visions, states and other institutions of power, individual and society, and national and European identity. By the end of this course, students will be able to explain the complex challenges of today through the lens of the European hegemony, have improved their analytical and evaluative writing skills, and have gained the necessary skills for success on the AP® exam in May.
