Physics Should I choose physics as my carrier?

  1. Nov 6, 2011 #1
    I'll elaborate.

    This year, in high school I started studying physics for the first time ever - I know, Mexico's Educational System is one of the Worst :\ - And I really, really liked it.

    The thing is, right here in mexico it is really hard to make a living as a physicist, and It's realy likely that you'll end up teaching physics. I don't like teaching, and i would hate to end up as a physics teacher, but I really don't wanna study anything else than physics, because it is just amazing.

    Soo, what should I do?

    Look at engineering. Some disciplines of engineering (electrical, mechanical, chemical) are close to some disciplines of physics, and you may find more options for employment with an engineering degree.
