Historians

High School

If you are interested in becoming a historian, be sure to take college preparatory courses in high school. Historians must be strong readers, writers, and speakers, so a strong background in English and speech will prepare you for further study in college. A knowledge of at least two foreign languages is also necessary for those who plan to earn a doctorate.
