Take courses in government, American history, and civics to gain
insight into politics. Math is also important because, as a
political scientist, you'll be evaluating statistics, demographics,
and other numerical data. English and composition classes will help
you develop the writing and communication skills you'll need for
teaching, publishing, and presenting papers. Take a journalism
course and work for your high school newspaper to develop research,
writing, and editing skills. Join a speech and debate team to gain
experience researching current events, analyzing data, and
presenting the information to others.
