Electives for an Applied Physics degree

  1. Oct 31, 2011 #1
    So as my first year of undergraduate Applied Physics comes to a close I have to start picking electives for next year.

    I have two options, I can either do 'bludgy' subjects so I can focus more on my core subjects and hence get better marks in them, or I can do a sub major which would probably look better on my record.

    I am interested in mathematics and computing and was thinking of doing the "scientific computing" sub major, but I am also interested in other subjects like psychology.

    My question is, what do you think would be more beneficial and if you have done a similar degree what did you choose to do?

    I know in the end the decision is up to me and my interests, but I was hoping someone here could give me their personal opinion.

    Thank you
