Math Career possibilities for Applied Math major with a concentration in quantum mechanics

  1. Mar 16, 2012 #1
    I'm a 2nd year physics major thinking about switching to applied math with a concentration in quantum mechanics. I was wondering if anyone knew any possible career paths that could arise from this degree, and also if a career in a more econ/finance/business related field would be a viable possibility.

    How exactly would you do an applied math degree with a concentration in QM? Does your school offer such a thing? What QM courses would you take that constitutes a "concentration" in it?

    You would more likely graduate with a BS in Applied Math and a minor in Physics. You can tell your employers that those were the kinds of classes you took to get your minor in a job interview, but I wouldn't put "BS Applied Math w/ Concentration in QM" on your resume, because that's borderline lying.
