Need urgent help for deciding SL History vs SL ITGS

Recommended Posts

Hello IB-community!

I am currently in high school and need to choose my IB subjects very soon.

As the title suggests, I would be very thankful if some of you would be interested in answering my question.


I am currently in a rough spot mental health wise, in the way that I am unable to tolerate any excessive focus on emotionally draining subjects,

due to the fact that I was diagnosed as a highly sensitive person and struggle with depressive episodes.


Therefore I am hesitant as to wether choose IB, history SL or ITGS SL.


Because last year I did not enjoy history at all, it was very war focused and left me "emotionally triggered" many times.

I struggle because its not the history that gets me, I actually liked it for most of my life,  its just all the extra in depth-detail about wars etc. that I can't handle,



Then I am torn between ITGS, because I don't know what to anticipate.


I am not into technology or computers very much, but it seems like a relatively relaxed subject that wouldn't get me into trouble emotionally straight away,

as I really enjoy sociology too.


Many thanks for your suggestions 


Kind regards, Saoirse

Welcome, sorry for the late response.

Content in IB History (any history) can be quite violent and horrific. I really don't know if I can say much more than that, but I think ITGS might be a good choice.
