AP Comparative Government and Politics
View Events/Assignments for
This course will cover International Relations and Comparative Government Theory and then apply that knowledge to the study of six countries: the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran. Students will study the history of political, social, and economic development in each of the six countries, the current structure of the governments, and the political culture and policy debates in those countries today. As this is an AP course, it will require a substantial amount of reading and written work, as well as research and keeping up with current events. An Advanced Placement (AP) Test will be taken in May and is a course requirement.
