To prepare for a career in botany, high school students can
explore their interests by taking biology, doing science projects
involving plants, and working during summers or school holidays for
a nursery, park, or similar operation. College prep courses in
chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, English, and foreign
language are a good idea because educational requirements for
professional botanists are high. Nonresearch jobs (test and
inspection professionals, lab technicians, technical assistants)
require at least a bachelor's degree in a biological science or
botany; research and teaching positions usually require at least a
master's degree or even a doctorate.
