IB Diploma Programme (DP) Courses

  • Two DP courses must be studied. The courses can come from any of the six subject areas and can be studied at the higher level or standard level, as well as a combination of the two. It is possible for students to study more than two DP courses. The table below shows the DP courses available at WHS. The courses can be chosen from any hexagon group 1 to 6 and can even come from the same group should the student want to specialize in a particular field of study. IBCP students are highly encouraged to take IB courses related to their particular field of study (CTE strand). The only restriction on course combination with regard to the Diploma Programme courses in the IBCP is that a student is not allowed to do more than one mathematics course from group 5 (Group 5 courses: Math Studies SL (1 year) & Math Studies HL—a 2-year course). IBCP students cannot study the DP core elements of theory of knowledge, creativity, action, services and extended essay.
