- Social Sciences
Social Sciences includes Geography, History, Economics and Business Studies. Geography is concerned with the study of places, the inter-relationships between the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them. It helps makes sense of their surroundings and the wider world in which we now live. History chronicles, investigates and interprets the past. It develops an awareness of the human condition, an appreciation of how human affairs have changed through the past and a sensitivity to how people responded and lived through events in the past.
All students study both Geography and History at Key Stage 3, and both are elective subjects at IGCSE and within the IB Diploma. In both subjects the aim is to develop academic skills appropriate to the individual subject areas and develop these within the context of local, national and world affairs.
Economics is offered at IGCSE and IB. At the core of Economics is the search for a better understanding of the workings of human society through studies of micro and macro-economics. Business Studies is also offered at IGCSE and at IB our students’ can study Business and Management. This is the study of the ways and means in which individuals and groups interact in a dynamic business environment. It examines how business decisions are made and how these decisions make an impact on internal and external environments.
Social Science is not simply about studying these subjects in the classroom. We believe it is important that students apply what they have a learnt to understanding the modern world around them. To this end our dynamic Social Sciences Faculty have organised a range of very successful and exciting events, for example National History Day, an international event which facilitates our students to travel to the University of Maryland, Washington, and participate in the finals of this world event. We also arrange interesting, stimulating visits to various locations across Indonesia and beyond.
