## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm a physics major, but I want to do a dual major in either Math or Applied math.

Basically the requirements are almost the same, except applied math requires one less and two more courses than the math major. I'd be taking the same electives either way (ODE, PDE, Linear Algebra, complex variables...).

I'm wondering, from a hireability standpoint, does either one look better? My guess is that companies probably would find applied math a bit more appealing. Honestly it really just boils down to title, but just curious about some peoples opinions.
