PF, I am a junior physics major hoping to work in nuclear engineering. The problem is that I would like to stay in school to get a PhD. I have a love of learning. However, I would like to get a Master's degree to start working and making a living earlier. I would not like to work in academia, but I feel like I could learn more of what is needed on the job with a PhD. Should I go for a master's degree or PhD? Also, what classes can I take to increase my chances of being accepted into a nuclear engineering graduate program?
