Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and have some questions regarding the vast field of physics and thought this would be a good place to start. My educational focus during my undergraduate degree was in Criminal Justice as I aspired to be involved in law enforcement upon completion. Well, I had some old sports related injuries resurface which stopped that career dead in its tracks and then decided to utilize my passion for computers and technology to gain entrance into the LE field. I am currently four classes away from completing my MS in Information Assurance & Security with the goal of working in the cyber security field for the government. Don't worry, I know this is a physics forum....I'm getting to the point. I have always had a fascination with physics and have been good with math/science, and have recently been reading about the correlation between physics (more notably quantum physics) and computer technology. I have been reading a lot about the possibility of quantum computers in the future, which would have a HUGE impact on cyber security ---- this makes me feel like I may have finally found my "niche" so to speak. I love to learn and have done very well in my graduate studies (3.9 GPA) but know this doesn't mean I will do well with physics. So my question is: What would be the best course of action for someone like me to get a background in physics? Go for the bachelors or the masters (with a ton of additional courses to bring me up to speed)? I know physics isn't a field you can just "brush up" on and am willing to put in the time and effort. I apologize for the lengthy post and appreciate any suggestions or advice you folks may be able to provide. Thank you and have a healthy/happy 2013!!
