Ok, so my academic career has been anything but traditional so far, but whatever. I'm heading back to uni this fall. I spent a year and a half at uni already. When I started off I was already well ahead as far as my math degree went. The second year there, I decided to study phyiscs/astronomy as well. So now that I'm going back, I sort of have a dilemma. I'm trying to figure out what would be the most efficient/economical (how best to spend my time and money,) as far as my education goes. So first of all, I'm determined to get a degree in math. That's my first love, always has been, always will. The question is whether or not to puruse physics/astronomy. I'm more interested in astronomy, but took the physics classes at my previous uni because I thought it would be a more solid background. If I was studying just physics or just math, I would have two years of uni left. However, the phyics fourses here are very intsensive, and I'm not very certain I could handle full schedules of physics and math for two years. So, I'm trying to decide if maybe I want to do both, and spread it over 3 years? Maybe just get a minor in physics? Or since I prefer astronomy, minor in that? Also, I hope to go on to grad school to study math as well. I'm wondering how helpful other majors/minors even are? And which would be most useful? Oh, and the math topics I prefer have little to do with astronomy and physics anyway. Which makes me question things even further. I really hate applied mathematics and numerical methods which would seem to be the most useful fields for physics/astro. So, even though I don't like those subjects, should I take those classes to make my degree combo better? Or maybe something else?
