Math Physic/Math degree help

  1. May 11, 2012 #1
    I'm taking a "Physics with mathematics" degree, the program has courses like medical physics, electromagnetic theory, quantum mechanics and physics, atomic and nuclear physics and relativity, electricity and magnetism, multivariable calc, numerical methods, calculus and analytical geometry and atomospheric physics etc etc.

    And I wanted to know a few things:

    -Is this a dual degree?
    -Can I do pratical work?
    -Will I be a physicist if I take this degree or a mathematican?
    - can I get into engineering with this degree?

    I know these might sound like very stupid questions, but this is the only degree I think might help me work in engineering since all other degrees at the college I'm going to are "engineering lites" (ET). Just wanna know the essentials please. Thank you for your time.

    Well, as the name states, it is a physics degree with mathematics. Do you feel as though your courses are more focused on physics, or mathematics?
