Year 2024 – 2025

Monday, September 9, 2024 – Friday, May 16, 2025


Student-Paced Course





This course is the equivalent of a college-level introductory Human Geography course. Students will learn to approach the world as Geographers, exploring the mutual interaction between the natural and built environments and human social, political and economic institutions. Topics covered include the foundations of geography; human populations, migration and demography; the distribution and spread of languages, religions and cultural practices; political organization, borders and states; the development and spread of agriculture; the origins and nature of urbanization; and industry, economic development and trade. On successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to sit the AP Human Geography exam.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Student-Paced course is a time-flexible course format that empowers students to complete rigorous and connected learning experiences while accommodating significant outside commitments, including travel, athletics, internships and camp. Students have full access to course materials and activities throughout the term. They work closely with teachers to set individualized weekly benchmarks to create accountability and build consistency. Students interact with teachers and peers via discussion threads, collaborative readings, video posts and other media. Students have the opportunity to meet live for orientation and introduction at start of term, progress check at midterm, and culminating presentations at end of term.
