    Programs Majoring in CS solely to get a job

    Thanks for your advice everyone. To be entirely honest, I don't even know if I actually hate computer science. I mean, I like it for the first few weeks when the assignments are easy, then started to hate them when they get harder, then reconsider taking another course because I am so worried...

    Programs Majoring in CS solely to get a job

    Hello, I am a second-year student studying mathematics at university. But give the pure nature of the subject, I have always worried about being unemployed after I graduate. So I thought of majoring in computer science because there are so many jobs in industry. However, I never liked...

    Programming as an analyst

    I generally don't like interacting with computers in general unless it is very straightforward. But money don't grow on trees and a job is not a job if I love it, right? What really grind my gears is the errors that pop up that I don't have a clue about. Or when make out-of-index errors when...

    Programming as an analyst

    Hello, I am a rising second year student studying mathematics. Back in high school when I chose to study math, I did not worry much about getting a job because I planned to do a double major with computer science. Then after two weeks of my CS course, I realized that I absolutely hate...

    Schools Electives in grad school?

    If I go grad school for math, specialize in representation theory, how much of fundamental physics (mechanics, electromagnetics, quantum physics, thermal physics) do I need to know to do research or write a dissertation in applications of representation theory in particle physics? I am curious...

    Schools Electives in grad school?

    Hello, I have been reading posts about the math required for graduate level partice physics. Group Theory (particulary Lie Groups) is frequently mentioned, of which I have been reading on my own and think I will be okay with it, but is Real Analysis really necessary? Also, what level of math...

    Schools Electives in grad school?

    Sorry for the confusion. When was writing this post, I kinda meant the former, but I am still giving some seirous though to myself, and I honestly don't know whether I want go grad school for physics or just do some particle physics related research while studying other subject. But thanks...

    Schools Electives in grad school?

    I am including 2 courses in ODE, 2 courses in PDE, applications of real and complex analysis, and possibly caculus of variations in my plan. I hope that will be enough?

    Schools Electives in grad school?

    I am not sure if I could remain preserverant, but I am kinda hoping to work on and perhaps write my dissertation of particle physics. Our advisor told me that, if I took two quantum mechanics, two electromagnetism, and one introductory particle physics course and do well in them, I could get...

    Schools Electives in grad school?

    "Electives" in grad school? Hello PF, I am an undergrad student majoring in one of the STEM field. I have a strong interest in particle physics, but I am not really interested in any other discipline of physics. For this reason, I don't think going to grad school in physics is not a...

    How many hard science courses can you handle per semester?

    Our math program requires only three math courses per semester so I can elect to take less intesive courses like music or french but our physics program requires four to five physics and math courses per semester. Because of this, I thought of taking three courses per semester and stay a bit...

    Taking three courses per term in undergrad

    OMG thank you everyone for such a great advice! It is physics that I want to pursue further, if I still want to do in the future. If I were to major in physics, I don't think I would have much trouble carrying 5 courses per term, as one or two of the will be electives. But if I decide to do a...

    Taking three courses per term in undergrad

    Haha I see your point. Let me explain my situation. I plan on getting a degree in computer science and a minor in some other science. As I am more interested in the subject in which I will be doing a minor, (and yes, I will spend some probationary years if necessary) but getting a job is more...
