Best Subjects for International Relations

Recommended Posts

I first tought of the following subjects:

English A SL

German B SL

Biology HL

Geography HL

Maths SL

Economics HL

Are they ok? Isn't History better than Geo??

I imagined at first studying in UK, Australia, German (although I don't know any IR course) or Switerland.

For International Relations, I would definitely recommend Economics for starters and I'm glad that you're taking Higher Level.

I myself don't take Geo so I'm not too sure what's in the syllabus but I would recommend History because I have learnt so much about International Relations in the 20th century.

For me, I am thinking about IR in UK univ.

I take:

English A SL

Korean A HL

Math SL

Economics HL

Geography HL

Physics SL

Do you take 2 native languages? Is this the Bilingual Diploma?

I would prefer to study German B in HL, but I have to be prepared to Germany as it requires Math or a Natural Science in HL. So I'm taking Bio HL.

What do you think about Geo core? Is it relevant for IR?

I plan to do International Relations and I'm taking:

English A HL

History HL

German B HL

French B SL

Biology SL

Maths SL

As you can see, I have English and History as higher levels plus I have two languages. I think an aptitude for English and for languages is very important for IR. I also think Econ would be helpful but I tried it for a couple of lessons at the start of the course and hated it so I switched to History :)

Yes I take two native languages (Korean & English) for the Bilingual Diploma :)

According to my counsellor, taking both Econ HL and Geo HL are good choices for IR.
