Why choose IB Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS) for your IB program?

ESS 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. This is why you should choose IB Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS) for your IB program!

The new ESS course: IB Environmental Systems and Societies

Environmental systems and societies (ESS) is an interdisciplinary course that combines a mixture of methodologies, techniques and knowledge associated with both the sciences and individuals and societies. Starting in 2024, it will be offered at both standard level (SL) and higher level (HL).

ESS is a complex and contemporary course that engages students in the challenges of 21st century environmental issues. It requires students to develop a diverse set of skills, knowledge and understanding from different disciplines. Students develop a scientific approach through explorations of environmental systems. They also acquire understandings and methods from Individuals and societies in social, cultural, economic, political and ethical contexts of sustainability issues.
