    Hi
    Im going to do a masters degree in physics and was wondering how diverse the range of things you could do with it are as i was looking at phds and graduate jobs (very far in advance i know but just wanted to get an idea of what i wanted to do) and the ones which looked most interesting to me were in the geophysics environmental science area eg about tectonic boundries and how they can change and affect the environment also geophysics based jobs. Would I be able do do this sort of thing ith a Physics degree??
    Thanks

    Physics degrees probably keep more options open (I'm not an expert in this but from what I've seen, practically all geophysics PhD projects are open to physics graduates). However, if you're sure you want to specialise in the Earth Sciences or Geophysics, an Earth Sciences or Geophysics degree could be slightly more useful and relevant.
