There is something to be concerned with here. Are you thinking of double-majoring in math also because you think you need A LOT of math JUST to "go higher in physics"?HungryChemist said:

If that reasoning is true, then ALL physics majors would be required to double-major in math. This, obviously, is false. While you do need a lot of mathematics to do physics, you don't have to double-major in math to do physics. You MAY want to double major in physics and math if you (i) have a keen interest in BOTH subject and/or (ii) if you intend to be a theorist (ugh) when you go on to graduate school. Doing a double major just because you think you need it to do physics would be doing it for the wrong reason. You can get sufficient mathematics by taking a course in mathematical physics, which I'm sure UCSD and many school offers.
