Does it make sense to double major in Chemistry and Physics?

2 comments

I’d like to go into regenerative medicine in graduate school, and I know that both Chemistry and Physics would help me. Since taking Chemistry guarantees me required Physics courses, would it make sense to just double major?

Do you think you could handle it? Would your school be willing to let you drop to a single major if you find out it’s a bit too much for you? Sounds like you should get some advice or answers from your advisor and any instructors (or TAs) that you trust. Then go ahead and make your own choice. Personally, I’d say it sounds like a good thing to try, but I’m not the one who would have to do the work..

Majoring in Chemistry will require you to take some Physics class, but if you double major in both you will have to take one or two more Physics classes, most likely.
