    I have selected Bio HL, Economics HL, Global Politics HL, English SL, Italian AB and Math studies SL. I am not sure what I can do with these options in the future. I would preferably like to do something related to Economics and Biology. Please Help!!!

    I'm sure there will be some joint Economics&Biology courses out there. Whether doing a course of that nature is the right thing to do I'm not sure. As user above has highlighted, your career plans should be the deciding factor here.

    P.S. Moved you into this sub-forum where you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    for Economics, it is better to take Math instead of Math Studies. Take it at least SL if you can not HL. Good luck!

    Honestly, most unis will ask for a higher maths instead of econs for an economics course, however (and this may just be my school) we weren't allowed to take maths studies and higher economics together (something about economics needing a higher level of maths) but be careful because some universities may not accept the math studies course. Economics and Global politics is a good combination, international relations? You could look into university programs to see what incorporates both science and humanities well.

    There isn't much intersection between the two - arguably aspects of ecology are predicated on similar premises of "competition for scarce resources", and there is some distant link between behavioural economics and psychology which is in turn distantly linked to biology.

    Something which may be relevant to your broader interests in them could be Human Sciences/Biological Anthropology - such courses normally don't have any specific prerequisites but having a scientific or quantitative background is often helpful - biosciences in particular. Such courses are relatively rare however. More general Ecology courses may be applicable for a joint personal statement focusing on evolution and ecology, or with anthropology focusing specifically on the human aspect.

    In any case, you may find your options for Economics heavily limited by taking Maths Studies, rather than SL or ideally HL Mathematics. Something more oriented around political economy may be more accessible with a more limited mathematics background, although some single honours economics courses don't have maths requirements - be aware they will teach you the relevant maths on the course, so if you hate maths it might be worth considering other courses.
