The Behavioral Analysis Unit, known as BAU, is specialized unit within the Federal Beauru of Investigation. In order to become apart of the BAU you must first join the FBI and become a Special Agent. Once you do this you can then apply for the BAU. Below are the requirements to join the FBI directly from their webpage:

To be eligible for the FBI Special Agent position, applicants must meet the following minimum qualifications at the time of application:

Be between 23 and 36 years of age.

FBI Special Agents have a mandatory retirement age of 57. In order to achieve the required 20 years of service for retirement, Special Agents must enter on duty no later than the day before their 37th birthday. Applicants must apply for the Special Agent position prior to their 36th birthday to allow adequate time to complete the Special Agent Selection System. The FBI may disqualify applicants at any time if it is determined that they will reach age 37 before appointment.

Current FBI employees must apply prior to their 39th birthday and must be appointed and assigned to the FBI Academy no later than the month of their 40th birthday.

Have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from a U.S.-accredited college or university.

Have at least two years of full-time professional work experience; or one year if you have earned an advanced degree (master’s or higher).

Possess a valid driver’s license and have six months of driving experience.

Meet the Special Agent physical fitness standards (see the Physical Requirements page).

Be available to report to one of the FBI’s 56 Field Offices for interviews and testing several times throughout the application process. You are responsible for your own travel to and from the Field Office. Applicants who reside overseas must be available for travel to the United States for testing and processing at an FBI Field Office at your own expense; you may choose a Field Office that is most convenient for you. While travel from an overseas location to the Processing Field Office (PFO) is the responsibility of the applicant, any additional travel for Phase II testing from the PFO will be incurred by the FBI.

If you are currently on active duty in the military, you must be within one year of completing your service before submitting your application.

I hope this helps and good luck!
