Right now I'm well into my third year as a physics major and I'm starting to wonder whether or not it's for me. I really do enjoy studying physics, but I am starting to think that a more creative career choice would be beneficial to me. I have taken many language and programming courses for fun over the years. I have recently had the opportunity to intern with a company that provides language learning solutions to various businesses internationally. The work I was tasked to do was in statistical analysis, and computational linguistics, and I really want to switch to Computer Science because of this valuable experience. I speak 3 languages, and I have been learning my fourth for the past few years, and I never knew this type of field existed until recently. I've always wanted to study linguistics, but I have been burned in the past by a low-paying degree (I did a B.A. in Music Theory after H.S.), and it really seems like Compsci would allow me to at least become involved more in the field, and still provide reliable alternatives for employment. I can always study physics on my own time, at my own pace. I am generally curious as to whether or not this sounds like a decent idea? I have many other interests and skills that could benefit from an extended knowledge of computational skills. I don't think that I would ever make any world-changing discoveries in physics/photonics anyway. It just doesn't feel like it's for me anymore. Would computer science help me learn a more professional and rigorous level of computation, and allow me to do other, more creative things?
