SOCIAL SCIENCES

Social Sciences consists of Geography, History, Economics and Business. Geography is concerned with the study of places, the inter-relationships between the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them. It helps makes sense of their surroundings and the wider world in which we now live. History chronicles, investigates and interprets the past. It develops an awareness of the human condition, an appreciation of how human affairs have changed through the past, and a sensitivity to how people responded and lived through events in the past.  
All students study both Geography and History at Key Stage 3, as well as both subjects also being elective subjects at IGCSE and IB. Economics is offered at IGCSE and IB. At the core of Economics is the search for a better understanding of the workings of human society through studies of micro and macro economics. Another Social Sciences subject that is offered at IGCSE is Business Studies, and at IB our students’ can study Business and Management. This is the study of the ways and means in which individuals and groups interact in a dynamic business environment. It examines how business decisions are made and how these decisions make an impact on internal and external environments. But Social Sciences is not simply about studying these subjects in the classroom. We believe it is important that students apply what they have a learnt to understanding the modern world around them. To this end our dynamic Social Sciences Faculty have organised a range of very successful and exciting events, such as National History Day, and have arranged interesting, stimulating visits to various locations across Indonesia and beyond.
