For the foreign service, you must have a degree to be competitive. for the civil service it is a little less competitive.

Bachelor's degree is a minimum. A law degree is best. Military experience is a plus. A bachelor's degree in history with an emphasis on American and diplomatic history is a plus, also journalism and communications, plus knowledge about such things as the UN, NATO, EU, petroleum, defense, espionage. But there is nothing like the experience of actually working outside of the US before applying to the Foreign Service.

There are positions available in government agencies for all education levels. Of course the higher education you have the more competitive you are, but in terms of applying for government jobs, having experience in other government jobs, military or Peace Corps service also goes a long way.
