I'm currently a student at University of Pittsburgh and I am undecided in my academic path. I enjoy writing and English, though I want to study physics - I don't necessarily need or want to get an engineering job when I graduate, and grad school is not something I'm hell-bent on attending. I enjoy the problem solving and subject matter of physics, and after a year of soul-searching cannot find anything that I could continually study that would interest me besides physics and English. I would be very happy studying physics and working in a loosely related or even unrelated field - I want to know how a BA in physics would set me apart from other people in combination with an English major and what opportunities this combination of studies would open up to me. To explain why I am debating on steering clear of the BS in physics: in order to complete the BS at this point, even if I attend summer classes, I would need to most likely go for another 4 years. I have my reasons for not wanting to stay in school for too long (I've been in for a year thus far), but if it is much more worthwhile to get the BS rather than the BA - or if it'd be worth it to get the BA and take a few extra higher level physics courses typical of those in the BS program - I would be willing to take this into consideration. ANY advice on what I should do is greatly appreciated. I posted on a separate forum about this and received overwhelmingly negative responses toward the BA, so I'd like to see what you guys have to say seeing as you may have much more knowledge on the subject. I didn't want to give up on the idea too fast!
