    I don't really know which american schools (I'm canadian) but if you go into a program that is dedicated to either nanotech or material science you'll just take the courses you're supposed to (and they'll probably outline extra courses you might want to take). As a reference here's the core course outline for nanotechnology engineering at Waterloo http://www.nanotech.uwaterloo.ca/Undergraduate_Studies/Course_List/?show=core

    If it were me, I'd like to major in physics and chemistry to make sure I understand the basics of nanoscience which I think begins in chemistry and physics. Then I would go to grad school for nanoscience or materials engineering. Or I would major in materials science and minor in chemistry and of course go to grad school. If I were going to be a researcher I'd make sure I understood all the basics and build from that by going to grad school.
