A strong college preparatory program is necessary in high school
if you wish to enter this field. Courses in other social sciences,
economics, mathematics, and English are extremely important to a
would-be economist, since analyzing, interpreting, and expressing
one's informed opinions about many different kinds of data are
primary tasks for someone employed in this field. Also, take
computer classes so that you will be able to use this research tool
in college and later on. Finally, since you will be heading off to
college and probably postgraduate studies, consider taking a
foreign language to round out your educational background.
