Hi, so I'm currently just starting my first year of IB, and I need help. I am most probably going to be graduating in Psych, Creative writing, or Bio in the future, and I have chosen my subjects, but have yet to choose a Humanities/Section 3 subject. My choices are Environmental Studies, Economics, and Business and Management. My subjects are:

English HL
Biology HL
Chemistry HL
French B
Maths SL

Now I have to choose one extra subject at SL. My counselor has advised me against Environmental Studies, as I've taken Bio HL and she says it will just be repetitive and I'll get bored, and I'm not too crazy about the subject anyways. So I'm left with BM and Eco. I've never studied either, and so I wanted to know:

- What is the main difference between them?
- Which one is easier?
- And which one will be more relevant to psychology? As a social science, which will be more easier to relate? Which subject might lead me into different jobs where there's still a link to psych? :confused:

Thanks

Yeah econ is more appreciated although the management in IB B&M has stuff like maslow and mcgregor which could be useful although you could easily learn all that online or from a book since most of those concepts are easy to understand

Can you explain a bit more why Econ is better and more appreciated? I've never studied either so I don't really get it. My BM teacher keeps on telling me to take her subject, as its more people orientated, but I would really like to know what you guys think.
