High school is not too early to begin preparing for a career in
ergonomics. You should follow a broad college preparatory
curriculum with a concentration in the sciences. Courses in the
life and physical sciences (biology, anatomy, health, and physics)
will be particularly helpful, as will classes in research methods,
writing and speech, mathematics, and computer science. Business
courses will also help you learn more about the business world and
the opportunities available for ergonomists. Any classes that
broaden your knowledge of people and how they work, and those that
sharpen your skills in communication, will be very important.
Knowledge of modern foreign languages may also increase
opportunities as global, multicultural economies are developing
