Question
I have to ask an expert about an occupation I am interested in as a school assingment. I chose Border Patrol/Customs Inspection. What classes should I take during High School to be prepared for this occupation?

Answer
While in high school, take advantage of foreign language classes, particularly Spanish.
Civics classes, history, foreign affairs are also good foundations.
Before being hired by the Border Patrol (CBP) or ICE, you will need a college degree.  Special emphasis is on scholars with a 3.5 or above.
