Biophysics, Is It Worth It?

  1. Dec 15, 2013 #1
    I'm currently an undergraduate student majoring in Molecular Biology and minoring in Physics and Biomolecular structure.

    1. Will these skills truly aid me in the path to a Biophysics Masters/Ph.D?
    2. Is getting a biophysics degree even worth the time and effort, in terms of job markets in industries other than resarch?

    The physics will. The bio not so much. I would switch to physics and pick up a bio minor instead.

    Honestly, it's hard to say. But I would dare to say probably not. In general a BS in physics would be less likely to "pigeon hole" you so to speak.
