Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello physics forum! I am currently working on my first semester towards an engineering physics degree, after receiving a bachelors of accountancy. I decided I didnt want to be an accountant for the rest of my life, and have always had an interest in physics, so I figured I would give it a shot and see where it takes me.

Ive already started looking around at the kinds of jobs I could get with an engineering physics degree, and it seems like a large percent of them involve working with companies that make weapons of some sort. I have absolutely no interest in working for a company that makes weapons, so my question is, are there lots of other available jobs for someone with a BA in accounting and a bachelors in engineering physics?

I wouldnt mind if accounting was part of my job, I just dont want it to be the only part of my job. I am still in my first semester, so if there was another major (engineering or physics related) I could chose that would have more opportunities now is the time to figure that out. I dont plan on going to grad school, as I would like to get a "real" job as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

There are jobs not in the aerospace/defense industry for Engineering Physics graduates. However, if employment is what you're worried about, consider getting into electrical or computer engineering.
