Electrical Engineering and/or Solid State Physics.

What are your interests? Designing ICs? Designing new semiconductor processes and devices?

I am interested in Physics in general as a major. I am still a high school junior so I have time to decide what I want to go into specifically, but after taking two years of Physics, I couldn't think of anything I'd rather study. Do you have any recommendations as to what majors and jobs there are available in the field of Physics?
