Education and Training Requirements

High School

Take as many computer science classes as possible—especially those in programming, data analytics, and database management. Sign up for English and speech classes to build your communication skills. Mathematics (including statistics), history, social studies, and philosophy will help to develop your analytical and critical-thinking skills, which you’ll use frequently as a data scientist.
