Chemistry Major for Alternative Energies? Or something else?

  1. Jun 16, 2011 #1
    I'm thinking about what major study. I want to work with developing more efficient alternative energies like solar or some other new emerging energies. I would want to also make these energies available for regular people to actually have powering their cars, homes, businesses, and cities. What course of study do you think I should major in to achieve this? I was thinking physics, or electrical engineering, or some other engineering, or chemistry.

    Also, do you think I should go for just a master's degree or all the way to a PhD? I'm leaning towards physics with a chemistry or electrical engineering minor.

    P.S. I will be attending Arizona State University this fall.
