Geographic Information Systems Specialists

High School

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, take 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.
