Integral to the Diploma Programme are critical thinking and an expression of ideas coherently, and the Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay afforded me the opportunity to engage with these concepts. They’ve been invaluable to my work as a political science major in college as I complete my 80 -100 page senior thesis amongst other work.
The world does not need more knowledgeable people only.
Our world today calls for the synthesis of knowledge and empathy to create tangible, lasting change and CAS, through the myriad of opportunities provided has shaped many of my peers and I into globally aware and empathic world citizens burning with the desire to impact our communities.
