Firstly thanks for reading my post. I was wondering would going to University for a Bachelors in Engineering Physics be the best way to get a career in Physics or would a Bachelors of science with a Chemical Physics/Physical Chemistry or a Physics major be a better option? I'm currently a Grade 12 student in Ontario, I have good grades (around an 85 average) and since my first Physics class I've wanted a career in the field (R&D). I am very confused on the best possible route and I would appreciate any advice, Thank you. Chris

Generally the best way to get a career in Physics is to major in / study Physics.

Engineering physics is more aimed towards applied physics/science. That's my understanding anyway.

The good news is, you don't have to decide right away. The first year or two are very similar. So once you get into a university, you can talk to professors, students, and academic counselors to see which path might suit you best.
