Welcome to AP European History
The goal of the AP European History course is to enhance historical thinking abilities through the analysis of a wide variety of primary and secondary sources and the development of specific writing skills to such a degree that students will be successful when undertaking the College Board's AP European History Exam. The actual content of the course focuses on the major events of European History from the High Renaissance to the Present relating to three specific themes: Intellectual and Cultural History, Political and Diplomatic History, and Social and Economic History.
Welcome to Honors PhilosophyPhilosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument.
The word "philosophy" comes from the Ancient Greek, which literally means "love of wisdom.”
The course will be thematic as opposed to historical in nature and focus largely on the thoughts and work of western Philosophers.
