In 2012, 97,700 students took the College Board’s Advanced Placement exam in Human Geography. The Human Geography course has grown by leaps and bounds and is energizing a new generation of geography students and teachers. The AP course includes population geography, migration, political geography, agriculture, economic geography, urban geography, and cultural geography. The essays from this year’s exam were graded in Cincinnati, the Queen City. Dr. Mark Bjelland of Gustavus was one of 50 table leaders who trained and guided the 415 exam readers.
