    World Geography aims to fill the Individuals and Society component of the Middle Years Program (MYP) of International Baccalaureate (IB). This course will focus on a comprehensive study of the relationships among people, places, and environments that result in geographic patterns on the earth. This course will involve examining at least five different themes of geography: physical geography, cultural practices, religious beliefs and how individuals and societies interact with their environment.

    World Cultures aims to fill the Individuals and Society component of the Middle Years Program (MYP) of International Baccalaureate (IB). This course will provide a comprehensive study of major turning points and developments that shaped the modern world from the earliest civilizations through the present day era of the 21st century. The course will focus on the continuity and change of global societies and the interaction between different people around the world by considering multiple accounts from a variety of perspectives. Throughout the course of study, students will develop an understanding of current world issues and relate them to historical, geographic, political, economic, and cultural contexts. This course emphasizes the concept of “thinking and working like a historian,” which includes engaging in critical-thinking, inquiry, research, reading, collaboration, and writing.
