To prepare for this career while in high school, a college
preparatory program is recommended. You will need a strong
background in science (chemistry, physics, biology), mathematics
(algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus), social studies,
and especially computer science (including programming and
applications), so take as many of these classes as your school
offers. In addition, history classes, which will teach you about
different cultures. English courses will help you develop your
research and writing skills. Also, consider taking a foreign
language. This may help you fulfill some later college requirements
as well as give you exposure to new words and names of places and a
sense of other cultures.
