Paleontologists

A high school student should take as many advanced science and math courses as possible. Other important areas include foreign languages, especially German, French, Russian, or Chinese because many papers on fossils are written in these other languages. Paleontologists rely a great deal on computer programs and databases, so take courses in computers and programming. You will be preparing your findings for publication and presentation, so take English and speech classes.
