Hello physicists and students of physics, I am on my way out of freshmen year and preparing for my next year of physics. My goal is to ultimately become a geophysicist but I haven't been able to find a sizable amount of relevant information on the field or how to become one. My advisor has outlined a plan for me that would include a few geology classes but because of liberal learning and language requirements, it looks like I won't be able to take any classes in the field until maybe junior year.. My next semester is Latin, Linguistics, Modern Physics, and Mathematical physics. Does anyone think I should swap one of these classes (not latin, though) for a geology/chemistry/meteorology class just so I can be introduced to other topics in the sciences before I dive right into my physics degree? Granted, I enjoy learning about physics and I am willing to put the time in to obtain the degree, but I'm not sure I'm intellectually gifted enough to excel in it so I am wondering whether I should branch out earlier than later. Also, I was thinking about getting the Boas MAthematical Techniques in Physics and trying to teach it to myself this summer (homework questions are answered on Cramster so I think I am certainly capable of teaching the material to myself if given enough time. 3 months seems like enough time). If you glazed over reading this and don't feel like making my decisions for me (completely understandable given the amount of these posts on this forum) then at least comment on geophysics or provide a link. I've searched all over the forum and no one seems to be talking about it. Thanks!
