CS+physics double major doable in 4 to 5 years?

  1. Oct 19, 2011 #1
    I'm a high school senior and I'm toying around the idea of double majoring in cs and physics, as I incredibly enjoy both fields. I aced AP Computer Science and AP Physics C(both Mechanics and EM). With AP credit, will I be able to complete a cs physics double major in 4 to 5 years without killing myself with workload? I do understand that both are pretty tough majors.

    Why don't you choose just one major? Nothing good can come of doing two. Even if you should manage to get your two degrees in five years, due to time constraints you'd still have large holes in your actual field of study (at some point you *need* to decide), and will most likely be missing essential auxiliary skills.

    Depends on where you go to college/university.
