Social Studies is a term used to describe the broad study of the various fields which involve past and current human behavior and interactions. Rather than focus in-depth on any one topic, social studies provides a broad overview of human society past and present. Richmond High School requires 3 units of Social Studies credit to be taken for graduation. Typically, American History is a Freshman course, World History is a Sophomore course, and American Government is taken by Juniors. Geography, Contemporary Issues, Sociology, and Psychology are offered as electives. AP United States Government and Politics and AP American History are offered as higher level courses that can award college credit hours.
