DC AP® European History


This is a college-level course covering the development of the modern world from approximately 1350 to the present day through the lens of a Biblical worldview. The areas of concentration include historical, political, and economic history coupled with an intense study of cultural and intellectual institutions and their development. Students will develop an understanding of some of the principle themes of modern history, an ability to analyze historical evidence, and an ability to express historical understanding in writing. This course will use a variety of sources and emphasize reading comprehension, writing, research, and analytical skills. Students will be prepared to successfully complete the AP European History Exam.

Special Notes:

The dual credit honors track includes a deeper focus on critical thinking and analytical skills by providing students with more challenging problems and assignments comparable to what they would see at the university level. These elements will also prepare students to be successful in future upper-level and AP® courses.

The Dual Credit fee for CCU is included in the fee for this course.


Europe, a continent with over one thousand years of what has come to be known as “Western Civilization.” This is a land of clans, tribes, castles, cathedrals, political wars and religious wars. A land which is known for its ingenious architecture, its vast and various artwork, its inventors, kings, tyrants and villains. Beginning with the latter Middle Ages, we will travel through the times of the Renaissance, Reformation, Exploration and on to the 21st century. As we move through this AP® course, you will be challenged not only in your understanding, but also in your critical thinking, your analytical skills, and written expression.
