Is AP Psychology considered a social studies class?

Hey everyone! I'm thinking about taking AP Psychology next year, but I'm not sure if it will count as a social studies class or not. Can anyone who's taken it or knows about it let me know? Thanks!

Yes, AP Psychology is typically considered a social studies class. Social studies courses encompass a range of subjects that explore human society and relations, including history, geography, government, and psychology. Although AP Psychology might not be classified as a core social studies class, like AP U.S. History or AP World History, it certainly falls within the umbrella of social studies due to its examination of human behavior and the workings of the mind in social contexts. Taking AP Psychology can be a great way to explore this fascinating field while also strengthening your social studies curriculum.
