The human sciences bring together five disciplines: history, geography, economics, law and business management.

These five branches are intended to be complementary, allowing students to develop critical thinking and autonomy while offering a holistic understanding of the world.


History places contemporary reality in the context of time and space and enables pupils to understand the causes and effects of the events under discussion.

It serves to distinguish between structural and situational trends and identifies continuity and breakdowns.

Its international character encourages a world view.


Geography focuses on interaction between individuals, society and physical environment in time and space.

It also looks at how humans adapt to changing circumstances.

Geography also encourages a world view and an international outlook by analysing issues of global importance that have local repercussions.


Economics explains how to satisfy human needs by combining macro and micro-economics.

It analyses precise, real-life contexts, national or international, with an emphasis on the ethical dimension of both theories and strategies.


Law explains how society is organised and how the rules necessary for ‘living together’ are drawn up.

As society is in constant evolution, the law needs to be critically analysed from a dynamic perspective.

The law changes not only over time but also over space and one of the key aims of studying law is to fully understand that reality.

Business Management

Business management is designed to develop pupils’ understanding of the theories of management in industry and provides the opportunity to use a range of tools and techniques.

The aim is to create an overall understanding of the complexity of today’s dynamic business environments through analysis, discussion and evaluation of the activities of a range of local, national and international businesses.

The programme includes the main organisational functions such as human resources, finance and accounts, marketing and operations management.

External experts

The programme is enriched by contributions from external experts (members of universities and international organisations and from economic and political contexts), participation in special workshops (Model United Nations, Students’ United Nations) and organised visits, all of which add to an understanding of the issues facing the world of tomorrow.
