Starting in the FALL of 2019, the College Board decided to split itโ€™s AP WORLD HISTORY course into two separate courses. This page is devoted to the second half: AP WORLD HISTORY: MODERN. Basically, this is part two of World History starting circa (around) 1200 CE. The College Board describes it like this:


In AP World History: Modern, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from 1200 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course provides six themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: humans and the environment, cultural developments and interactions, governance, economic systems, social interactions and organization, and technology and innovation.
