Hey everyone. I'm getting ready to start college in a few months, and I've started to get a little worried about what I'm going to major in. Right now, I've been thinking of doing a physics/math double major, as they're both complementary and easy to pull off (there's a lot of overlap for degree requirements). I've just been thinking about long term goals and I'm not sure if choosing such a concentrated degree choice is a good idea. I've been reading topics on this forum for a while, and I've come across two recurring opinions. One, that physics degrees show problem solving and that you're a smart person, and thus are relatively marketable in different areas. Second, is that physics research jobs are highly competitive to get into, and chances are I'm not going to get a job that I'm satisfied with for years, if at all. Now, at this moment, I'm interested in going into physics research, but the unsure likeliness of getting a decent job with it is making me doubt that. Now I'm also interested in maybe doing medical research, or becoming a doctor, or perhaps something else. I haven't completely ruled out many things. At this point, I don't know enough about any field to make an informed decision of what I want to do. But is the idea that a physics degrees are marketable in areas other than physics true? Would a physics/biology double major be better if I applied to a PhD-MD program? Basically, will choosing physics/math, which in my opinion is pretty concentrated, hinder me in the long run if I chose to not go into physics research? And if I do end up getting a PhD in physics and pursue physics research, will I probably not find a decent job? Thanks in advance!
