Physics!
Physics, the most basic of the sciences, has intellectual and useful
aspects. The intellectual component resides in our innate desire to
understand the physical characteristics of our universe. The
usefulness is evident everywhere in high-tech products and
computerized communications. Productive citizens in this
technological age have a liberal education which includes an
understanding of science. Many of the technological advances in
our modern society flow directly from physics laboratories, such
as, the many applications of lasers, or the possibility of high speed
levitated trains relying on high temperature superconductors.

Me and Physics
After doing this report on physics majors, I have become less interested in
the idea of majoring in the subject. The career choices of a physics major do not
really excite. In addition, I do not really enjoy the subject matter in general.
However, I do think I have a similar skill set that is required to be a physics
major, but I will not major or minor in physics.
