  3. Is it unwise at this time to double major in chem/astrophysics?


I (F22) live in Los Angeles (for clarification).

I’ve heard a lot that funding is going down in a lot of space related science areas or different science areas in general. If this is true, or as serious as it seems, Does this mean that majoring in a science or two would be a bad idea at this time? I want to get an associates in biology, and transfer for astrophysics and/or chemistry (the bio associates at my community college fulfills requirements for chem and physics at the UC system). I won’t be done with school for at least 5-6 years, so I’m not sure what this will look like in the future, but for those of you with careers relating to physics and chemistry, what do you believe is a good decision to make? Should I continue to pursue the option of science? Or should I just choose something else? There’s not much else I’m interested in besides creative writing and communications, and I think we can all assume that those degrees will get me nowhere.
