I am thinking I will major in EE and Physics is this a wise course of action? My true passion has always been physics however I also wish to have the practicality of the EE degree to fall back on if for some reason higher level studies in physics don't work out( I hear it is very difficult to get a good job with just a BS in physics).

I hope to be able to leverage this degree in graduate school as I hope to work in radio astronomy or instrument design where an EE background may put me at an advantage.

In terms of industry how will I be viewed? Favorably compared to those with just EE degrees as I have further fundamental knowledge?

The one unfortunate aspect is that I will not be able to take any electives in either physics or EE as the required courses for each major will fill out my schedule, how might this hurt me?
