A little bit of background: I'm 26 years old, and I just finished my first year back at school. I previously got a degree in Economics but hated the field. Now I've discovered that I really enjoy Physics and Electrical Engineering. Thankfully, I got scholarships the first time through school, so I didn't have any debt. This time, I'm financing my education through a combination of student loans and working part-time. I'm pretty much set on getting the Electrical Engineering degree because I want to have the ability to get a job in my field straight out of school. But I also love my Physics classes. I get excited at the thought of taking some of the upper-level Physics courses. In fact, if this were my first degree, I would major in Physics alone. I'm most interested in the research and development side of industry, which means I'll probably want to go on to a graduate degree in either Physics or Electrical Engineering. I'd like to be involved in research more so than just developing standard products for a company. Some of my interests include renewable energy and nanotechnology. At my school, there is a Physics degree with an emphasis in Engineering Physics. For that double major, I would only need to add 30 credit hours (10 classes) to my degree. I could also go with just a Physics minor, in which case I'd add only 9 credit hours (3 classes) to my degree. Most likely, I would go to graduate school in Electrical Engineering, so I could just take the classes that are most relevant rather than taking courses like Mechanics that aren't as relevant or Modern Electronics, which is probably redundant. I've been agonizing over this decision for months now.
