How to become an apologist?

I was wondering what the steps to becoming a Catholic apologist are? It is such a beautiful vocation of defending our Catholic faith, and I would love to look into the process academically.
I am a senior in high school and am wondering what degree path I would take to becoming an apologist?
Also,with that degree, what are the career options found on this life track?
Thank you so much for all you do
God bless you and your ministry,
Chloe M.
