What field of physics to specialize in?

  1. Jan 17, 2014 #1
    Hey Guys...! ............. Hope you all be fine...

    I want some advice from you all... I am in the final year of BS Physics... and we have to choose one course for specialization... Our University offers only these 5 courses.
    I want you to tell me the advantages and applications of these fields... Please!

    Following are the options:

    1) Energy and Environment
    2) Spectroscopy
    3) Biophysics (may not be available)
    4) Electronics
    5) Space

    Energy and Environment - no clue

    Spectroscopy - important in chemistry lab work and also has applications in solid state physics, astronomy, and biology.

    Biophysics - not sure, probably for those interested in continuing on to an MS in biomedical physics

    Electronics - May cover the application of modern electronics in experimental research. Could cover anything from circuits and boolean algebra to semiconductor devices and microprocessors

    Space - Incredibly vague/no idea
