But students have options. In choosing subjects they can emphasize their strengths and passions and select classes that are novel and adventurous. Maybe a student wants to be a scientist, diplomat, or an artist. Maybe the student is drawn to another field entirely. No matter the interests, students can personalize their IB Courses based on who they are.
