Okay Hello Forum Im a student in high school atm and Im extremely passionate about Mathematics(pure and computational) and Theoretical Physics I may be young and ambitious and whatnot at this point of my life but I'd really love some feedback to guide me on a clearer path... so I wanted to go into Quantum Field theory and I was debating with my dad earlier ..according to him you need to take an engineering subject alongside so as to be on the safe side of things but to be honest Im more focussed on the theoretical side of Physics . Anyway so my questions are as follows and any correction in my notion of becoming a physicist would be appreciated. 1) Does the theoretical side of Physics have any scope in today's day and age? 2) Assuming that I wanted to go into Quantum field theory and whatnot , what would I be doing after my Masters ? or phD for that matter ... As in how would I go about making a living out of it? 3)What is the future of Theoretical Physics? 4) The job market and job opportunities? Do most people with a Physics degree end up teaching in highschools and whatnot? P.S. I apologise for the poor presentation of my questions , Im very young but I need to know and I'd love to correct any wrong notions I possess so please go easy on me :P Thank you !!
