To prepare for a career as an herbalist, take classes in
agriculture, botany, ecology, and horticulture so you can learn
about plants and how they are grown. Biology, chemistry, and
physics will help prepare you to study the properties of herbs and
their therapeutic uses. If you want to become a health care
practitioner, you will be taking a lot of medical courses in
college, so premed classes will be especially helpful. Nearly all
health care professions involve interacting with people. Classes in
psychology, English, debate, and drama can help you develop good
communication skills. If you become an herbalist, business and
computer skills will be important because you are likely to have
your own business.
