Border Patrol Agents
The minimum educational requirement for anyone wishing to train
as a border patrol agent is a high school diploma, although a
bachelor's degree is preferred. If you are still in high school,
take geography, social studies, and government courses. This will
help give you a general background for the field. Take a foreign
language class, specifically, Spanish; fluency in this language
will give you an advantage over other job applicants.
