Almost all jobs in this field require at least a bachelor's
degree. In high school, you can begin to prepare for a career in
forensics by taking a heavy concentration of science courses,
including chemistry, biology, physiology, and physics. Computer
skills are also important, especially for fingerprint classifiers.
A basic grounding in spoken and written communications will be
useful because forensic experts must write very detailed reports
and are sometimes called on to present their findings in court.
