What is required to become an FBI agent?

I am an eleventh grader and I am interested in becoming either an FBI agent, detective, or something in that field. Besides a high school diploma, how many years of college is required? Do you go to a special college like a police academy or training school?

The easiest way to become an FBI agent is to join a Military branch for 4 years and specialize in something that the FBI has a field for, like; Special Ops, Weapons and Tactics, Strategic Analyst... More

Excessive gas and love of whiskey sours. Kidding...Get yourself into a good university and get a master's degree (or even a doctorate) in politcal science, international relations, or law, or a combination of two.
