You can double major at CGA if you place out of few classes and make room. CGA will pay for your grad school while in service. Don’t rush take one thing at a time.I have applied to CGA and declared EE as my major but also have some interest in physics. I know this is very far out, but is it possible to get a physics master after an EE Bachelor?
I know that. So you can take classes to prep you for grad school while taking EE. Take more advanced math classes. You need deep math for high level Physics. So when you major in Physics you can place out of advanced math and take more relevant classes to Major. Grad school is very quick little time for prerequisites.CGA doesn't offer physics as a major
@ekb1398 makes a very good point here, you need to be certain EE is what you want to study. In part, because EE is one of the more technically difficult majors CGA offers. Not very many people graduate with an EE degree. I asked an EE classmate out of curiosity - when we were at CGA (not too long ago), the average number of people who declared EE their freshman year was around 30. The number of people who graduated as an EE was in the low teens, in my class's case, 13. Some of the remaining 17 did not graduate and some changed majors - voluntarily and because they couldn't meet the requirements. OP, if you had to change majors, is there something else you could switch to and still be happy/satisfied?I would also add to this that it probably will not be a Coast Guard funded master's, as many Cadets later go on to take advantage of. I would say engineering/applied physics is possible but probably a very long stretch, so just keep in mind it will be on your own time and dime, even if that dime is a GI Bill.
I just want to throw this out as food for thought, not to discourage you. This is the second post I've seen in as many days about studying physics by you. Make sure you are really okay with studying EE - 4 years here is hard when you absolutely love what you're doing, and I couldn't even imagine surviving here in an engineering major if I was settling for something. If physics is really where your heart is and EE is just the closest thing we offer but you aren't all that interested, then perhaps another academy or ROTC may be a better fit, or maybe you don't like the idea of those. I'm just throwing this out there for consideration.
I didn't see any changes on the website, but that doesn't mean anything if you're familiar with the CG and updates to information. I'd definitely be interested to hear what the changes are if that is true.In reply to trackandfield, I believe they actually changed the way MES works starting with the class of '22 in terms of the way the tracks work, but I'm not positive of that.
