Physics major  
I'll be attending Iowa State in two years (I'm going to transfer from Kirkwood) as a physics major. I haven't been able to find much information about educational requirements, so I was wondering if anyone here could help.

Firstly, I was wondering how many years of college are required for a student intending to go into the fields or either nuclear physics or theoretical physics? I know I'll need a doctoral or postdoctoral degree for most jobs in the field; does Iowa State offer either of these, and if not, where is the best institution to acquire them? What courses here at Kirkwood are best for preparation for this major, aside from the blatantly obvious math and physics courses? Is there any other important information I will need to know going into this?

Thanks in advance for any help
