EPA Special Agents

High School

A well-rounded education will provide a solid foundation for future work as an EPA special agent. Take classes in math, science, history, environmental studies (if offered at your school), English, and computer science. Agents need to be physically fit as well, so be sure to take physical education classes and make exercise a part of your regular routine. Fluency in another language is particularly useful in this line of work, so be sure to take foreign language classes.
