Careers for Physics Majors

Physics and astronomy majors find jobs in research and development in high-tech industries, in engineering, and computer software/IT .  They go on to graduate school in all engineering fields, the physical or biological sciences, as well as to professional schools such as medicine, law (especially patent law), and business. They work in universities and government labs, observatories and planetariums. The Sloan Foundation pretty much sums it up as follows:

"More than most other majors, a physics degree is a passport into a broad range of science, engineering, and education careers." -- Sloan Foundation
