Columnists

High School

You'll need a broad-based education to be a successful columnist, so take a college prep curriculum in high school. Concentrate on English and journalism classes that will help you develop research, writing, and speaking skills. Keep your computer and Internet skills up to date with computer science courses, and learn how to use social media. History, psychology, science, and math should round out your education. Are you interested in a particular topic, such as sports, politics, or developments in medicine? Then take classes that will help you develop your knowledge in that area. In the future, you'll be able to draw on this knowledge when you write your column.
