Physics Physics with Astrophysics or Just Physics (BSc)

  1. Aug 8, 2011 #1

    I just want to know if it would be better job wise to have a degree in "Physics", or a "degree in Physics with Astrophysics" given;

    1) I want to follow an astro related field?

    2) I want to have number of options (physics related and/or unrelated eg banking)?

    ..and then an opinon on overall which you think is better?

    I don't think it matters. There are a lot of people (like me) who did a physics undergraduate because the school didn't offer an astrophysics option at the time.

    Ok, well my situation is that my university just awarded me a degree in physics, when I actually completed physics with astrophysics...so im not sure if i should inform and change or just keep this?....and I have also already been accepted for a masters in astronomy and astrophysics so im not sure how much this will matter either :S
