I don't know if you are in high school or college so I'll answer both:

High School:
Art history
Computer science
Creative writing
Film production

Animation fundamentals and design principles
2-D and 3-D animation
Advanced modeling
Production studio and studio techniques
Life drawing
Texture and lighting

For more specific college courses, I recommend checking your major requirements at a specific college to get better results!

In addition to taking a variety of animation and art courses in school, it'd be to your advantage to skill up on your own using resources such as SkillShare. They have high quality video content about new skills taught by amazing teachers. There are often offers and trial deals to get you started, so keep an eye out for those. I'd also recommend connecting with animator communities like the ones at Extra Credits to find people that can direct you toward other free resources, depending on the type of animation you're looking to get into.
