To prepare for this field, take college preparatory classes in
high school that include both the sciences, such as biology and
chemistry, and government or law. In addition, take mathematics and
economics classes, which will give you practice working with
numbers and theories. Take history or social studies courses, which
will provide you with an understanding of the development of
societies. Since much of your professional time will be spent
researching documents, writing patent specifications, and
presenting arguments, be sure to take English classes. These
classes will help you develop your writing, speaking, and research
skills. Finally, since many colleges have a foreign language
requirement and biotechnology work takes place around the world,
consider adding a language to your class schedule.
