With a range of subject choices and additional compulsory subjects, the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a complete package that brings to students various facets of learning. Subjects not just ranging from science to arts, but also touching upon Film, Theatre, Dance, Theory of Knowledge, and so on guide and prepare students, between 16-19 years of age, for success in university and beyond.

The IB Diploma Programme aims to provide a safe yet academically challenging place for students to become knowledgeable, compassionate, curious, and interculturally understanding adults. With multiple language options and subjects like Global Politics, students are given a credible platform to learn through the lens of other cultures.

The IBDP Global Politics course studies the foundational concepts that include power, equality, peace, and sustainability in many contexts. It gives the students a platform to understand and process politics not just on a local level but on national, international, and global levels, as the name of the course suggests, and explores issues that affect their own lives. Through real-world case studies, the students have a more grounded approach to understanding abstract political concepts. The analysis and comparison between these case studies allow a global perspective on them.

This course encourages thinking and research skills that contribute to the understanding of the subject; skills that include text analysis, comprehension, transfer, and use of primary sources. Students are then able to engage with different perspectives and approaches to the subject to understand the challenges of the dynamic world and gain awareness of their role as active global citizens, making them feel responsible for any decisions they make on that front.

Join this course if you’re interested in learning and applying global politics to the real world.
