It takes many years of education to become a pharmacologist, but
you can begin to prepare yourself for this work by taking college
prep classes while in high school. Naturally, you should take
science courses, including biology, chemistry, and physics. If your
school offers more advanced science courses, such as molecular
biology and organic chemistry, take these as well. You will also
need a strong math background, so take four years of mathematics,
including algebra, geometry, statistics, trigonometry, precalculus,
and calculus, if your school offers this. Keep your computer skills
up to date by taking computer science classes. Because you will
need strong researching, writing, and speaking skills, you should
also take four years of English classes.
