Is Applied Math a good choice for me?
I'm a person who has developed a lot of interests recently. Ever since I was little, I knew I wanted to get a degree in physics or astronomy, but now I have branched out. I was wondering if applied math is a good major for me because of the way I can branch out. I have interests in computer science and tech, finance and investing, and of course my original desire to do physics. I do not know which to pick, so I was thinking of just majoring in applied math so I can combine it with any minor I end up choosing when my interests are more clearly defined. I'm a rising high school senior. I'm also looking to minor in a language as well. Any pointers?3 replies
