hi, I've pretty much finalized my DP choices, but am struggling between taking economics and theatre. I could take it at either HL or sl, if I were to take it sl though then it would be my fourth HL. Anyone have experience with these classes? I want to do something social science related, but neither would be extremely useful, but I'm interested in both.

just fiy my other classes are:
german A HL, biology HL and history HL,
then Math and English Lit at SL

thank youuu

hey there! i was in a similar situation last year, debating between taking art and economics- i ended up going with economics. personally, i think this choice was best for me as i am also quite into social sciences and hope to do something in this field. i find that economics relates much more to social sciences than any art, so i would recommend taking economics! however, it's a choice that's ultimately up to you! what area of the social sciences are you interested in persuing specifically? i could probably help more if i knew that :) sorry if this isn't much help!!

I'm in both and I just wanted to tell you that Theatre is great (I am in process of Collab Project and Director's notebook right now!!) but it requires A LOT of writing
It is not based on acting much, but is all about how much and how well you write. I have more theatre hw than English tbh. In fact today I didn't even get to sleep for at least an hour because we had 3 writing assignment for different projects due in the morning...
however, I do have to say that I absolutely love the class and the teacher I have! It's an amazing class if you like theatre))))
Econ is just an easy class tbh, I have a 6 predicted atm, and I don't even try haha, but I will probably get a 7 for it So that says a lot about the difficulty) It's easy and I like it as well!!

I'm taking both as HLs btw

My school has neither of these classes, and I️ wish I️ could have taken both! In terms of HL or not, evaluate the HLs you are taking (an HL math, language B or science is going to be WAY harder than HL history or language A) and then decide from there
