I was wondering what the practical implications of choosing a Major vs. Honours programme in Physics are. At UBC second degree students are namely normally not allowed to pursue the Honours programme, so before accepting the offer I would of course like to know more of what only doing a Major would entail. How would my chances of going for a PhD be limited (if at all)? How do employers look upon that? And lastly, if one is significantly worse off by doing only a Majors degree, is it then better to go for an Honours one at a "lesser" school than going for a Majors at a "better" one? Thanks in advance everyone.
