Yes, you can choose humanities subjects for IAS even if you have a science background. UPSC doesn’t have any restrictions; it depends on your interest. Other factors you must consider before choosing any subject are as follows:

•    Is the subject considered scoring?
•    Is the syllabus large or small?
•    Are enough study materials available in your medium of exam?
•    Are good teachers or coaching institutes available, in case you need help?
•    Is the pattern of questions asked in the exam difficult or easy?
•    Will it help you in the preparation of the General Studies paper?
•    Are you comfortable studying it?
•    How many days’ gap is generally given by UPSC between your two optional subjects?
