AP4All Course: AP Environmental Science

AP Environmental Science is designed to be the equivalent of a one-semester, introductory college course in environmental science, through which students engage with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world. The course requires that students identify and analyze natural and human-made environmental problems, evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. Environmental Science is interdisciplinary, embracing topics from geology, biology, environmental studies, environmental science, chemistry, and geography.

Laboratory Requirement: Although there are not specific AP Environmental Science labs or field investigations required for the course, it is expected that students perform as many labs/field investigations as possible.

Prerequisites: Students should have completed two years of high school laboratory science – one year of life science and one year of physical science (for example, a year of biology and a year of chemistry). Due to the quantitative analysis required in the course, students should have also taken at least one year of algebra. Also desirable (but not necessary) is a course in earth science. More information can be found on the AP Environmental Science Course Overview website.
