To be in agricultural sciences and natural resources, earn a bachelor's degree in agriculture. Agriculture--America's largest, most successful industry--involves business, technology, education, research, and production. And since agriculture depends upon the wise use of our natural resources, there are many career opportunities in the environmental sciences, as well. Agriculture draws heavily from mathematics, biology, statistics, biochemistry, microbiology, and chemistry, so those courses are important. Graduate degrees can lead you to more sophisticated research and development positions. In high school take as many courses in math, science, and English as possible. Also, take courses in computer science and communications.
