Im about to finish my bachelors degree in chemistry and am debating whether I should do a masters in materials science or a masters in chemistry afterwards. I am considering materials science over chemistry as I did not like undergraduate organic chemistry and my research project was in the realm of materials chemistry which I enjoyed.

I would like to know how similar are the two disciplines. Is materials science at masters level more physics or chemistry? How do their job prospects differ? I have heard people say that chemistry at masters level is worthless for jobs unless you go on to get a phd then go into academia or insutry afterwards. As a chemist will I be lacking many fundamental materials science skills/concepts? Will my knowledge be signicantly behind someone who studied materials science and engineering for their bachelors and is doing the same materials science masters as me?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
