Have a look at these links to other ESS sites; well worth doing.
As a TransDisciplinary Subject, Environmental Systems and Societies is designed to combine the techniques and knowledge associated with group 4 (the experimental sciences) with those associated with group 3 (individuals and societies). By choosing to study a transdisciplinary course such as this as part of their diploma, you are able to satisfy the requirements for both groups 3 and 4 of the hexagon, thus allowing you to choose another subject from any hexagon group (including another group 3 or 4 subject). Transdisciplinary subjects therefore introduce more flexibility into the IB Diploma Programme. The environmental systems and societies course is offered at SL only.
