AP World History: Modern


Year 2024 – 2025

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


Student-Paced Course





This course is the equivalent of a college-level introductory Modern World History course. Students explore the figures, processes, and events that determined the course of human history between 1200 CE and the present. Major themes include human-environment interactions, continuity and change in political and economic systems, developments in societies and culture, technology, and globalization. Through discussions and investigation of primary and secondary documents, students build the skills needed to develop persuasive historical interpretations. On successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to sit the AP World History: Modern 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.
