World Studies EE Help- Genetically Modified Crops

Recommended Posts

I want to write a world studies essay using biology and environmental sciences (possibly another subject if necessary, math maybe? With statistics? I don't know I'm very confused as to what is expected of me with a world studies EE) about the global food crisis and how it can be solved using genetically modified crops. I am not sure how in depth and focused my research question needs to be though. I can go as specific as corn in different areas such as Kenya and the United States, or take it on a how this impacts the environment route if that makes any sense. But I'd like help as to what I need to do to make it more or less concise, please. Thank you :)

Do you have a copy of the EE guidelines for World studies?
Have not looked into it myself but i could try to help.

I've read it but don't completely understand what they want. My rough research question at the moment is "To what extent can genetically modified corn be used to impact the global food crisis?" however I think it might still be too vague.

Environmental science is not my strong point, but you could try to narrow down your topic to a specific region or group of people. You could also focus on the ecological impacts (if any) and interaction with other corn crops/farmers.

Edit: Make sure that your topic is locked down to a certain subject area. Unless something has changed, the IBO will grade you based on the criteria of a SINGLE subject area. So while you can use statistics/biology/etc. in your EE, just be aware that you're only going to be graded on one of those areas.
