The AP Seminar (year-long) course is the first course in the AP Capstone experience. The course is designed to equip students with the skills and strategies necessary to analyze and evaluate information from divergent perspectives in a variety of media formats (i.e., articles, philosophical texts, speeches, artistic works, and performances). The course engages students to craft and communicate evidence-based arguments on academic and real-world topics and issues. College Board recommends this course for grades 10, 11, and 12 and there are no pre-requisites.
Unweighted AP Seminar is a prerequisite for AP Research. The course is only offered at select AP Capstone schools.
