So I've decided I wanted to attend UF straight through to my PhD I realize this might be looked down upon but It's a thing I'm willing to take. UF has a Bs/Ms program for physics where a student Can get a Masters degree in Physics in 5 years. A master degree takes off 30 credits required for a PhD cutting it down to only 60 credit hours( i think?). Would this be faster then a Bs then straight PhD? Uf has undergrad research so does 5 years of research plus PhD research count as work experience? (5+ years experience)? This question isn't exactly academic but is a High Energy specialization a good bet? Anti matter will be very useful eventually I think.
