AP European History 12

Course Outline

The AP European History Course and Exam Description defines what representative colleges and universities have said students should know and be able to do in order to earn college credit or placement. Students practice the thinking skills used by historians by studying primary and secondary source evidence, analyzing a wide array of historical evidence and perspectives, and expressing historical arguments in writing. Although the course framework is designed to provide a clear and detailed description of the course content and skills, it is not a complete curriculum. Teachers create their own local curriculum to meet the needs of their students and any state or local requirements.
