Hey guys.

I'm from Malaysia and I'm currently applying for the American Degree Transfer Program offered in one of the colleges here (Have been in college for only 2 days). I'm planning to major in physics but I'm having some doubts about it. Probably like most of you guys here, I'm a sucker for discovering how the world works and would really love to understand all the tiny little details and tenets of it. Personally, I also find complicated mathematical theorems that have been derived from simple axioms mindblowing and very fulfilling indeed.

But delving into theoretical physics I fear do not also cover some of my younger curiosity, namely the science of the mind and brain (Teenage insecurites FTW). For me, I guess it is more rewarding to be able to apply the physics that I have learnt to the human mind and brain so as to be able to understand it from the ground up. Hence my title. Would it be wise (or even possible) to double major in Physics and Neuroscience? Or should I stick to getting a good foundation first in just Physics and Math?

I guess another major concern would be the cost, seeing that I'm coming not from too wealthy a family. May I ask for your help and suggestions as to what I should do with this, PF?

Do what interests you. If the institution you wind up at allows it, why not?

Apply for financial aid.
