What can you do with a physics degree

  1. Mar 22, 2006 #1
    sorry if this is a repost, i am sure this question has been asked MANY times

    BESIDES teaching high school
    what kind of jobs can a bachelor's, masters, and PhD in physics get you?

    Money is not my primary concern, i would like to actually like to apply my nowledge and actually acknowledge that all the hard work that i am currently doing in undergrad (and definitely grad) by actually using it. I know of people who have gotten very good marks in physics only to go and work in banks.. i dont want that.

    Is getting a job iwth a physics degree less lucrative than with an engineering degree?

    I have a BS in math and physics and work as a health physicist.
