Foreign Service Officers
Those who work for the Foreign Service will need to call upon a
great deal of general knowledge about the world and its history.
Take courses such as social studies, history, American government,
and English literature. English composition will help you develop
writing and communication skills. Any foreign language course will
give you a good foundation in language study-and good foreign
language skills can help in getting a job with the Foreign Service
and make you eligible for a higher starting salary. Take a
journalism course in which you'll be following current events and
world news, as well as developing your writing and editing skills.
Accounting, math, business, and economics classes will give you a
good background for dealing with foreign trade issues.
