What classes should I take in my senior year of high school?
I am having trouble deciding what classes to take for my senior year of high school, and I am hoping that you jellies may be of help!
Background information: I plan to study international relations and political science in college, and I hope to ultimately become a foreign ambassador, so I’m choosing some classes based on that. I also want to take classes that are normally core curriculum in college just to get them out of the way.
I have a total of eight periods to fill. I have already chosen five classes, but I have three left undecided.
I have already chosen:
-AP Political Science
-AP Human Geography
-AP Literature and Seminar
-AP Language and Seminar
These are my options for the other three classes:
-Pay $300 to take an anthropology course at the community college. I’m not really sure if this will be significantly helpful towards my career goals, or if it’s worth the money.
-AP Environmental Science. Once again, I’m not sure if this will be helpful in the long run, and I’m not particularly interested or disinterested in the class.
-AP Physics with Calculus. I am currently taking AP Calculus and doing well. I am somewhat interested in this class, but I know that it is very difficult and that it is not at all related to my career goals.
-AP Probability and Statistics. As I previously stated, I am currently taking AP Calculus. I know that calculus is the core curriculum math for college, so I don’t technically need to go any further. AP Prob and Stat is the only math class left for me to take. However, I am not sure if it would be more beneficial to continue my math education or to take one of these other classes.
-AP European History. I don’t really have an opinion one way or the other about this class, but I’m not sure of the core curriculum for social studies. I am currently taking AP US History.
-Latin I. I am very interested in taking Latin I, and it would be a nice break from so many AP classes. However, I would not receive college credit, and it is not really related to my career goals.
I apologize for the incredibly long details, and I appreciate all of you taking the time to help me out!
