12 Apr Environmental studies syllabus for 2023
ES&S is one of two interdisciplinary courses offered in the Diploma Programme. Because it is an interdisciplinary course, students can study this course and have it count as either an individuals and societies or a science course, or both. This gives students the opportunity to study (an) additional subject(s) from any group.
Students will be able to study this course successfully with no specific previous knowledge of science or geography. However, as the course aims to foster an international perspective, awareness of local and global environmental concerns and an understanding of the scientific methods, a course that shares these aims would be good preparation.
During the course, students will study eight different topics. An important aspect of the ESS course is hands-on work in the laboratory and in the field.
