This video goes over statistical mechanics and a few other classes you can expect as a physics major. For those considering the major also note that if you do not get a PhD then you will likely not get a job working as a physicist.

I am, based on your videos, largely interested in string theory and quantum… Physics, mechanics and entanglement. I would love to know more about them and the difference between them.

So, if I get a bachelors in physics, is it better if I aim towards a masters in something?

Can't do too much with a bachelors in physics.

7:52 you can also do computational physics, which is neither theoretical nor experimental

Got my BS in physics, and went on to become:
* a day laborer (6 mo)
* a forklift operator (2 yrs)
* a computer programmer (6 yrs)
* an engineering technician (10 yrs)
* a research engineer (11 yrs)
* a QC tech (3 yrs)
* an R&D tech (9 yrs)

A roller coaster ride to be sure, but no regrets – laid off in 2014, decided retirement made sense, and now divide my time between hiking with my dog and watching YT videos on math & physics!

What will be my undergraduate course if I want a PHD in Nuclear and Particle Physics?Do I have to take Statistical Mechanism in University and then study Condensed matter Physics later and then do PHD in Nuclear and Particle Physics? Pls help

"Do not do a physics PhD unless you have a strong passion for the subject"
Say it again… Slower. There's nothing wrong with an engineering degree, despite what Sheldon Cooper says. 😃

Can you do a video of the Engineering Science and Mechanics major (which is like engineering physics except is in the engineering department)? I was trying to decide between that or mechanical engineering but I love physics, even the quantum stuff. Thanks

I don't definitely know if I want to do PhD. Is it okay to do Master in some engineering field after Physics Bachelor?

At the very end, those were the questions I should've asked myself before I pursue physics in grad school. I could've saved myself a lot of heartache. I find out that I didn't have a strong desire for the subject and didn't know what to do with it. Most people were of no help and the ones who did have physics phD only recommended grad school. Thanks for this video.

yeah I majored in physics… don't do it. i'm noticing a lot of comments suggesting the same. if you really want to do physics do it in grad school not undergrad.

After getting some work experience, System Engineering is another field to consider if you have a Physics Degree.

One of the great things about a Physics education is that you can be competent in a variety of Engineering fields and work between these specialties; you tend to have a better mental flexibility compared to people who are Subject Matter Experts.

And don't stop teaching yourself!
It's curious how few people do this as part of their careers.

I am sad that you showed Sheldon and Leonard but did not show Raj when you mentioned astrophysics. By the way, I never figured out whether he is theoretical or experimental. Can someone help me out? (I guess it is experimental, but still…)

Can I study master in engineering after physics bachelor degree?

I can't decide. Bachelors/Masters in Physics, and go to industry, get paid relatively well, but not do any of the interesting stuff like particles, relativity, and quantum. Or Ph.D in particle physics but not be able to know if I well get a good paying job to support me, plus phds are expensive themselves.
hmmmmmm

The first half of the video explains the rest of the major. The second half goes to the need for the phd instead of just the major itself and here I disagree and will try to convince employers since graduate school is all about doing research, so why pay a university instead of getting paid by employer while doing the same thing which is doing the math and data analysis and so on.

photons can have any energy your wrong m8. in harminic systems with definate eigenstates sure, but red/blueshifts alone makes the statement that a particle only has a certiain value times N is bullshit, because the frequency can be ANYTHING 😛

@MajorPrep can you make a video about bs in chemistry explaining the quantum physics they use and if it is kinda similar to a bs in physics in both, math and quantum level ? Thank you!

I am a current undergrad majoring in physics and looking to go into the tech/engineering/research side of physics and this video is one of the most helpful and hopeful things I've seen in a while. I had no idea that about half of these opportunities existed, and now I am only further motivated! Thanks a lot!

Wait, you can skip masters and go straight to Ph.D?

Although I did want to be an Aerospace Engineer, working with Aeronautical Engineer Staff could be fun

What do mean by passion, is it just that you need to like physics, or you need to be able to solve problems?
I want to do physics and maths both, how can I achieve that?
Any suggestions?

I noticed that you didn’t mention that a lot of physics majors actually go on to study law, more specifically patent law as having a background in physics is pretty helpful in that area
