Programs Double major in Astrophysics and Engineering Physics?

  1. Jun 30, 2016 #1
    I am going to be a high school senior this fall and I want to pursue a career in astrophysics, but the amount of jobs is small, so would it be a good idea to double major in astrophysics and engineering physics? I was also wondering what other engineering majors can go with astrophysics. Also I do plan to get a PhD in astrophysics.

    This would be a prudent/reasonable strategy if you were to exit with a BS and then work, but if you continue to pursue a PhD you'll have the same marketability problem, only postponed by five years or so.
