In order to pursue any work that involves foreign government, you need a good, well-rounded education. Talk to your school counselor about the classes that will be most helpful in preparing for college. Courses in American history, Western civilization, government, and world history are important, as well as classes in math and economics. English composition will help you develop writing and communication skills. Any foreign language course will give you a good foundation in language study—many ambassadors know more than two languages. Journalism courses develop writing and editing skills and keep you informed about current events.
