Hi there, I have finally (at 22 and third year in college) decided what I want to major in–physics! I love it, so so so much! I especially want to be an astrophysicist. However, after hearing from a bunch of people, my professor included, astrophysicists don’t get paid much, and a lot of people want to do it. This really bummed me out, because that’s my true passion. However, I don’t want to major in it, spend 8 years in school, and then not find a job, or find a lower paying job. I have a daughter, and I don’t have room to take chances too much. I need to get stable for the both of us. I genuinely want a six figure salary, and I would love to be able to do research, my life goal is to make a major contribution to physics. However, I just don’t know what I can do with a physics degree that will get me paid a decent amount, while at the same time doing what I love. Any advice or suggestions?
