Bs.physics (optics) or major in physics minor in C.S

  1. Feb 13, 2015 #1
    hi guys !

    i am currently in my 3rd year of my B.s in physics with a specialization in optics , but , i don't like optics at all , so i had this idea of taking a major in physics and minor in computer science.
    i would like to know if you think its a good combination .

    need some insights

    thank you

    What sort of courses would the computer science minor require? Experience with programming is never a bad thing in the sciences, I'd say.

    Computer science is a useful minor. I say go for it.
