i'm currently in australia about to go into my second year of uni. last year i did the standard first year physics and maths courses, astro II and a couple of philosophy electives. i'd always wanted to do physics but after taking the e&m course, i think i am a bit offput. i enjoy maths a lot more. so i hate things like fields, thermo, etc, but love quantum and astro. the former courses would be required for a physics major and i really do not want to do them.

anyway, to my point. would it be feasible for me to do the required maths courses for a maths major, still take the quantum/astro/dynamics/computational courses i'm interested in, and then do honours and my phd in some kind of mathematical based astro topic?
