I'm doing a 5 year masters (Mphys) in mathematical physics. My director of studies told me that is a much more prestigious degree than the straightforward physics counterpart, and says it will serve me well in the future. However, for my last three years i wont be doing any labwork at all, its all replaced with advanced theoretical and mathematical courses (quantum field theory, fundamental symmetries....). Will this limit my career options, for example, will i still be able to work in industry? Basically, will i be less employable than if i had taken the (much easier) straightforward physics degree?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
