Hey, there. I am reading this forum for close to a year and it seems to have knowlagable people. I am in a little academic crisis right now. I'll start by saying I was enrolled in a CS/Physics double major. I actually started University 7 years ago, and returned just now, at age 26. I was hoping to finish my degree (I finished a few courses before I left) but unfortunatly the CS department head in my University was very strict with me about a course I failed in (it is the only course I have left to finish first year), and because of this I am forced to leave the CS department and get my B.S in only physics. Before I left I managed to take and pass Intro to CS, Intro to Object Oriented Programming, Discreet Math, a course in computer systems, and I took but not passed Data Structures. I decided to focus on Physics for now, but while I am interasted in Physics and want to get a Master's in the subject, I always liked computers and am still interasted in Computer Sceince. It's just that the deparment head forces my hand here. My question is - in people's experiance - would I ever need the more advanced CS courses I won't be taking? If I want to go into computational physics - would I be at a disadvantage? What areas of Physics have computers play a big role? If I do get a Master's in Physics and do resarch that rely heavily on computers - Will I be competative for jobs CS majors useally do? What about a Ph.D? I ask because I understand most people on the forums here agree most physics majors useally end up working in fields other than physics rather than stay in resarch. I would love to hear people's advice here. Any advice might be helpfull. I just feel like I'm in the dark about the consecuences of this change in studies, and would feel better knowning my prospects.
