Although there are no specific educational requirements, most stenographers should have a high school diploma. Some high school students follow a business education curriculum and take courses in typing, shorthand, and business procedures. These students may later enter a business school or college for more advanced technical training. Other students may follow a general education program and take courses in English, history, mathematics, computer science, and the sciences, intending to undergo all of their technical training after graduation.
