If you are thinking of becoming a pharmacist, you should take college preparatory courses in high school and concentrate in the areas of mathematics and science. It is especially important that you take biology, chemistry, and physics to prepare for this work. Additionally, you should take English, speech, and a foreign language, because good communication skills will be important as you progress through college, job interviews, and eventual employment as a pharmacist. If working as a community pharmacist sounds interesting to you, consider taking business and accounting courses to prepare yourself for working in and running a drugstore.
