The goals of the AP European History course are for students to gain knowledge of basic chronology and of major events and trends from approximately 1450 to the present and to develop an understanding of some of the principal themes in modern European history, an ability to analyze historical evidence, and an ability to analyze and express historical understanding in writing.

The themes outlined below indicate some of the important areas that might be treated in an Advanced Placement course in European History. The ideas suggested do not have to be treated explicitly as topics or covered inclusively, nor should they preclude development of other themes. In addition, questions on the examination will often call for students to interrelate categories or to trace developments in a particular category through several chronological periods.

1. Intellectual and Cultural History
2. Political and Diplomatic History
3. Social and Economic History
