Scrum Masters

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Since the technology industry is a major employer of Scrum masters, it’s a good idea to take as many computer science classes (especially software development classes) as possible in high school. Any classes—such as mathematics, science, social studies, psychology, and philosophy—that help you to develop your critical-thinking and problem-solving skills are recommended. Scrum masters spend a lot of their time teaching and interacting with members of the Scrum team, company executives, Agile coaches, and product owners, so English (including writing) and speech classes will come in handy. As the United States becomes more diverse, learning a foreign language has become even more important because it will allow you to work with team members and customers who do not speak English fluently (or at all), and give you the ability to work in foreign countries, where English is not the primary language.
