Studies in Language and Literature
The language A : literature aims at exploring the
various manifestations of literature as a particularly
powerful mode of writing across cultures and throughout
history. The course aims at developing an understanding
of factors that contribute to the production and
reception of literature.
Language acquisition consists of two modern language
courses - language B - designed to provide students with
the necessary skills and intercultural understanding to
enable them to communicate successfully in an
environment where the language studied is spoken.
Individual And Societies
This course is designed to develop students’ knowledge
and understanding of business management theories, as
well as their ability to apply a range of tools and
techniques. Students learn to analyse, discuss and
evaluate business activities at local , national and
international level. The course covers a range of
organizations from all sectors, as well as the economic
contexts in which those organizations operate.
Economics is an exciting , dynamic subject that allows
student to develop an understanding of the complexities
and interdependence of economic activities in a rapidly
changing world. In this course, students are allowed to
explore economic models , theories and key concepts, and
apply them, using empirical data , through the
examination of six real-world issues. Students will
develop the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that
will encourage them to act responsibly.
World history is a course based on a comparative and
multi-perspective approach to history. It involves the
study of a variety of types of history, including
political, economic, social and cultural, and provides
a balance of structure and flexibility.
Physics is the most fundamental of the experimental
sciences as it seeks to explain the universe itself,
from the very smallest particles to the vast distances
between galaxies. Despite the exciting and extraordinary
development of ideas throughout the history of physics,
observations remain essential to the very core of the
subject. Models are developed to try to understand
observations, and these themselves can become theories
that attempt to explain the observations.
Chemistry is an experimental science that combines
academic study with the acquisition of practical and
investigational skills. Chemical principles underpin
both the physical environment in which we live and all
biological systems. Chemistry is often a prerequisite
for many other courses in higher education, such as
medicine, biological science and environmental science.
Biology is the study of life. The vast diversity of
species makes biology both an endless source of
fascination and a considerable challenge. Biologists
attempt to understand the living world at all levels
from the micro to the macro using many different
approaches and techniques. Biology is still a young
science and great progress is expected in the 21st
century. This progress is important at a time of growing
pressure on the human population and the environment.
The IB DP Mathematics: analysis and approaches course
recognizes the need for analytical expertise in a world
where innovation is increasingly dependent on a deep
understanding of mathematics. The focus is on developing
important mathematical concepts in a comprehensible,
coherent and rigorous way, achieved by a carefully
balanced approach. Students are encouraged to apply
their mathematical knowledge to solve abstract problems
as well as those set in a variety of meaningful contexts.
The IB Diploma Programme visual arts course encourages
students to challenge their own creative and cultural
expectations and boundaries. It is a thought-provoking
course in which students develop analytical skills in
problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working
towards technical proficiency and confidence as
art-makers. In addition to exploring and comparing
visual arts from different perspectives and in different
contexts, students are expected to engage in, experiment
with and critically reflect upon a wide range of
contemporary practices and media. The course is designed
for students who want to go on to study visual arts in
higher education as well as for those who are seeking
lifelong enrichment through visual arts.
