Hello! I'm not sure if this was the right subforum to ask this question, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. Currently, I'm a student at a California CC looking to transfer to a CSU here. I'm majoring in physics and have knocked out all my lower division classes and will be graduating on time with a degree in hopefully physics. However, I'm not majoring in physics to be on the forefront of scientific research or developing breaking edge technology; I'm doing it because I want to teach. High school specifically, it's what my family does. I have a few questions to the educators or anyone with general knowledge in the field of science education. First, the school I'm looking to transfer to offers a degree in astronomy, at its core is a physics based curriculum. I'm interested in earning a BA in astronomy and minor in physics and geology (for personal preference). However, my worry is when I apply for a teaching job in the near future, will having a BA in astronomy, even though it is physics based with even a few astrophysics courses in the program, hinder my resume? The more and more I read about teachers in physics and general science nowadays, it seems that a good handful all have their BS's in physics or engineering. Will a BA not look good to future employers at the high school level? My backup plan for my safety schools are to obtain a BA in physics and at one a BS in physics education. TL;DR Will an astronomy BA/physics and geology minor not look as good as a physics BS to teach high school physics/general science?
