Students are required to choose one subject from each of the six academic areas, including one from Individuals and societies. They can choose a second subject from each academic area except the arts.

Studying any one of these subjects provides for the development of a critical appreciation of:

  • Human experience and behaviour
  • The varieties of physical, economic and social environments that people inhabit
  • The history of social and cultural institutions.

In addition, each subject is designed to foster in students the capacity to identify, to analyse critically and to evaluate theories, concepts and arguments relating to the nature and activities of individuals and societies.

At TIPS we offer Business Management, Economics and Information in Global Society courses to choose from. These courses develop leadership, managerial and technological skills amongst students reinforcing the aim of making them world citizens.
