Alright, so I am in the process of switching my major (again), and this time to physics. I started in management for 3 semesters, then building construction management for 3 semesters, and now I'm going to physics. So far I have really enjoyed physics. I'm just hoping I don't eventually become overwhelmed by it. One thing that bothers me a little though is the job aspect of it. People keep asking me what I'm going to do with it, and other than "I don't know really yet", I don't have a whole lot to say. I usually tell them I can be a professor, and that I've considered that, but I don't really know what to say other than that. Here at Purdue we have a couple options for majors. First is just general Physics, and the other I am considering is Applied Physics. General Physics is just pure physics, and with applied physics you take 30 credit hours of classes from another major (say, engineering) and you get a "specialization" in that. You do take 2 less senior level physics classes than general Physics to make up for that though. Now, I have a ton of credits from my other two majors built up, but they just count for electives basically. There are a bunch of electives in general Physics, but not many in Applied Physics (they are used up with the specialization classes). So I've been here 3 years and am kind of getting tired of it, and would have to be here 1 or 2 semesters longer with Applied.... But it might be worth it for a specialization like that. What jobs would be available to me potentially with those two majors? I'm sure i wouldn't be able to do much with general Physics without a Ph.D, but with Applied Physics and that specialization could I potentially be able to do something straight out of school? I've also considered some kind of engineering so I can only go to school for a couple more years and be done, but I don't know. My grandpa (metallurgical ph.d engineer) and my professor of my Statics and Strength of Materials class have tried convincing me to go with engineering (I'm #1 in my S&SoM class, which helps. lol). I really have always liked planes a ton too, so Aeronautical Engineering does sound potentially interesting to me also (depending on what they actually do on a day to day basis). So what kinds of graduate school/jobs could I, or would I have to, do with maybe a general Physics degree, an Applied Physics degree, or maybe an Aeronautical Engineering degree? Thanks for any help and sorry this was so long. I would really like to get this sorted out soon so I can attack this and get done with school.
