I am an undergraduate pursuing a double major in mathematics and statistics. I am planning to go to graduate school to get a phd in mathematics. Well i got to thinking and i was wondering if double majoring is the right decision or if i should just major in math and minor in stats. If i double major, my statistics degree could lead to more job opportunities if i cant cut it out in graduate school. It will take a few more classes and money but it could be worth it. But then again it could be useless because im planning, and will do graduate school for math. If i only major in math and minor in stats then i can take a few extra math courses in preparation of graduate school which might be more useful in the long run then a double major. So im stuck in a predicament and im wondering what you guys think.. double major or major/minor. Please explain your opinions, thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
