No History Class Senior Year?

<p>Would I be crazy not to take a history class senior year. I've already taken AP Euro and am taking APUSH now, despite the fact that I love history, my school does not offer any other high level history classes I am interested in. AP Psych is a joke at my school and the AP Econ teacher is incredibly boring. Without a history class my schedule would be: Physics, AP Spanish, AP Lit, Painting, and AP Computer Science. Would it be ok to not take a history class?</p>

<p>It's fine not to take it. If you've taken APUSH and AP Euro colleges know that you've exhausted all the higher level history courses.</p>

<p>If you took ap euro what about world history? My school only has u.s. and world history</p>

<p>It's fine. I'm not taking a History class senior year. I hate history. It won't affect you in any way if you don't take one.</p>

<p>Many top colleges seem to put less emphasis on history in high school anyways. They kind of know that it really doesn't prepare you for college anyways.</p>

<p>I too exhausted my school's history classes after junior year (took AP World then APUSH (no AP Euro), so I'm taking AP Economics right now.</p>

<p>My school require a bunch of one semester S.S classes. With my school that runs on trimesters (12 week semesters) it fairly easy to take Geography, US history 1,2 and 3, Gov and Eco before senior year. The problem? Too many classes to choose from.</p>

<p>There is so much material to cover... I have one chapter (25ish dense pages) of notes due every other day. This usually takes 2 hours alone, and we have DBQs fairly often. A few weeks ago I handed in a 20 page research paper on the achievements of African-Americans and women in the past 400 years of the U.S, which was a real killer to write.</p>

<p>AP Economics is actually really easy. The questions are very straightforward and really don't vary much except be the wording and situation. The concepts are pretty easy to memorize.</p>

<p>I took APUSH last year and didn't find it to be too bad. I got a 5 on the AP and a 790 on the SAT.</p>

<p>This year I'm taking AP Euro, which is similar but not as interesting for me. I'm not going to take history next year, but rather double up on science and math courses.</p>
