Hi, I am a senior this year and will be starting college next year. I am definitely going to major in physics, but at the school I plan to go to (McGill University) there is a program for a B.S. in both physics and chemistry, and also physics and math. Their website says these are programs designed for a career in theoretical physics, and I am considering either one. I have never been all that interested in chemistry, but upon looking at the courses they seemed pretty intriguing. They was physical chem 1 and 2, statistical thermodynamics, spectroscopy, organic and inorganic chemistry, advanced quantum mechanics, and polymer chemistry. For the math major, I would take several courses in analysis and algebra, a course in differential geometry, as well as math courses normally in the physics curriculum. What I'd like to know is how the chemistry courses would compare to similar courses in physics. Would I learn things in these that could be valuable because of there more real-world approach? To what extent could a background in chemistry help with materials science or condensed-matter physics? Also, to what extent could more abstract mathematics help in a career in physics? I would appreciate input from anyone with some experience in these fields. Thank you.
