    Do you mean communications satellites? Or other NASA/scientific satellites? I would think that a heavy emphasis on communication theory would serve you well, as well as perhaps an internship at a company that designs and deploys comm satellites.

    You might search a bit for Ka, Ku, and C radio frequency bands which are allocated for satellite use. try checking "GPS" system....

    Also, try Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satellite_communication

    The article gives a decent overview...and note MANY references at the end of the article.
