Human Geography

More than 113,000 students took the AP® Human Geography exam in 2013 and it is estimated that there are 3,200 AP® Human Geography teachers nationwide. As demand for AP® Human Geography exams increase, so will the demand for qualified teachers. It is the single fastest growing subject in the AP® disciplines.

Designed specifically for secondary educators, the Graduate Certificate in Human Geography for AP®  program focuses on teaching spatial concepts as well as basic themes, skills and perspectives of AP® Human Geography and how to apply them in the classroom.  

In small, cohort-based classes, you’ll work with experienced educators and professionals—and earn a certificate in less than a year. The program is offered entirely online through the Elmhurst College Online Center, providing the convenience teachers want—and need.  

The program curriculum correlates directly with the AP® Human Geography Course Description. For more information about the Graduate Certificate in Human Geography for AP® program at Elmhurst College, please browse our course offerings or contact us.
