I graduated from high school about a year ago, during which time i had taken some college classes and had managed to get my A+ certification, along with 2 lvls of cisco certification. after that i got a decent job, but decided the field was not for me. so here i am now, trying to presue my child hood dream of becoming a physicist. im about to start attending college but im a little lost, id like to major in condensed matter physics, with maybe a minor in bio-chemistry or something to that nature, but im not sure exactly how to do so. all the colleges i look at offer 4-year degrees in "physics" but theres no specialized devisions(i.e. solid state, quantum mechanics, theoretical) are the course im looking for later in my educational career? like during grad school? sorry if this seems like a really stupid question, but unfortunately i payed little attention during high school to anything college related, i was sure i wanted to do computer networking for a living. also if anyone could suggest a minor, or possibly another major that would coincide with my physics major(solid state, condensed matter) and would help my chances of employment, i would be very grateful. thanks.
