    Hi, I am going to be a physics major next year and participating in AFROTC. The Air Force declares physics as a technical major but I was wondering if this only applies to a B.S. in physics or if it also includes a B.A. Thanks for the input.

    Shouldn't be a problem...I study a B.A. tech major. Talk to cadre at your school. They know more than us!

    However I'm fairly certain engineering/CS are the only 5 year approved majors. Other tech majors have a 4 year graduation expectation (not 100% certain)

    If it is the only degree type that school offers for Physics than it will be fine. However, if the school (like Johns Hopkins) offers both a BS in Physics and a BA in Physics, would AFROTC care? Even in this case I do not think ROTC would care. Best bet is to call the cadre.

    Okay thanks for the info. Also Akrogan, I just looked it up, physics is approved for a 5 year graduation time frame. So thats good news for me I guess.
