Physics Physics major need career advice

  1. Sep 8, 2011 #1
    Hi, I'm going into my second year of the physics program and I was thinking about trying out for med school afterwards. In case that doesn't pan out, what are some other jobs that require a physics degree? If I don't make it into med school, I'll probably go for a masters and probably Ph.D, but I don't know what I could do with that.
