Hello, I am planning on becoming a psychologist when I go to university. These are the classes I like:
ENG LANG LIT (SL) because English is okay
Ab initio Spanish (SL)
because I dont want to do French A and billingual diplomas are not beneficial
Because my school doesn't offer psychology and Philosophy and psych overlap. Either this or Geo or Business.
Because Psych and Philo over lap
Math Studies (SL)
Cuz i hate math
Theatre Arts (HL)
Theatre and Psych overlap as well
Are these subjects suitable for the career I want? I will be going to america

These are fine, but the one thing I'd recommend though is that, even if you find it hard, you should do sl maths instead of studies because psychology does involve a fair bit of statistics and that might count against you, otherwise

I would actually disagree if you were applying to the UK, I am currently doing math studies and unless you are applying to to oxbridge i dont think it should limit you (I have received offers from 3 uni's, 2 in the russel group). I think doing philosophy is a great substitute for psychology and biology is also a great choice. Psychology degree's usually dont require you to have done psychology prior to studying it so I think the diversity may benefit you.
However, as you are planning on US universities I think you should do Maths SL mainly due to the fact that you will sit ACT/SAT's and they will be difficult. Also as a theatre arts student I would really think twice about the course. It involves a huge amount of essay writing and doesn't have that much acting involved. but it can still be a really interesting course!
