Is a Physics major smart?

I've always had a love for science and a career in physics would be perfect. However, the job field for physics majors is very competitive and finding a good job that isn't a high school teacher is rare. Should I still pursue this major? #physics...

As a physics major, how much do the classes I take now affect what I can do while working on a masters degree? If I major in chemistry and not computer science, could that make me ineligible for a project I would have otherwise wanted to work on?

I am majoring in physics and minoring in chemistry, and I am worried that I will not have enough engineering or computer science education by the time I graduate, since those two disciplines are tied so closely to physics. #college #computer-science #engineer #physics #college...
