Diploma candidates have the option to take a Group 6 subject, or take another Group 2, Group 3 or Group 4 subject instead.
Group 6 relates to Arts.
When making course choices, students and their families, will make decisions taking into consideration student’s future needs, interests and abilities.
Taking a Group 6 Arts subject doesn’t require formal prior teaching, but prior experience with the subject will be beneficial for each student.
At ISB, students can choose between:
- Visual Arts at SL or HL
- Theatre at SL or HL
- Film at SL only (IB online, via Pamoja Education) - read more under IB Online Courses
These subjects aim to enable students to “enjoy lifelong engagements with the arts; be reflective and critical practitioners in the arts; understand the dynamic and changing nature of the arts; explore and value the diversity of the arts across time, place and cultures, express ideas with confidence and competence, and develop perceptual and analytical skills.” (IB guide)
