Welcome to AP European History! Throughout the school year we will travel through various periods in European History, starting in the late Middle Ages and culminating with the end of the Cold War. Although this will be a challenging course I believe that you will find it extremely rewarding. You will learn about fascinating events and people from history such as Machiavelli, Catherine the Great and Joseph Stalin. During our journey through history this year, my goal is to prepare you to be successful on the AP exam in May.
