Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, take at least one year each of biology, chemistry, physics, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Introductory calculus is also a good idea. English and speech classes will help you to convey your results both verbally and in writing. Many colleges also require several years of a foreign language. Language skills are useful because scientists frequently exchange information with researchers from other countries.
