• Advanced Placement African American Studies
    1 Credit
    Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12
    In AP African American Studies, students explore key topics that extend from early African kingdoms to the ongoing challenges and achievements of the contemporary moment. Given the interdisciplinary character of African American Studies, students in the course develop skills across multiple fields, with an emphasis on developing historical, literary, visual and data analysis skills. This course foregrounds a study of the diversity of Black communities in the United States within the broader context of Africa and the African diaspora. The course provides students with a strong foundation in facts and evidence about African American history and culture, offering an immersive survey course that is not currently available in most American high schools.
    Note: this class counts as an elective for seniors.
