Broader Learning Abroad
Tyler talks about how taking AP classes helped prepare him for the rigors of college-level courses.
Nothing gets me more excited than a mental challenge—and the four AP courses and five exams I took in high school definitely prepared me for the rigors of college-level courses. The AP credits I received allowed me to skip straight to higher-level, more demanding courses in my major, and make room for minors in physics and Spanish. Being able to pursue extra classes in Spanish meant I had access to a rare opportunity: spending the spring quarter of my freshman year studying in Leon, Spain. AP credit and placement didn’t just help me focus on areas where my true passions lie; it allowed me to see a part of the world I had always dreamed of visiting.
