Take courses in government and social studies to learn about the
nature of cities and counties. Math and business courses are
important because you'll be working with budgets and statistics and
preparing financial reports. English and composition courses, and
speech and debate teams are also very important, as you'll need
good communication skills for presenting your thoughts and ideas to
policy makers, special interest groups, and the community. Computer
science is an important tool in any administrative profession. Take
journalism courses and report for your school newspaper to learn
about research and conducting polls and surveys.
