Mathematics Degree

  1. Dec 14, 2008 #1
    In the future, I'll eventually have to declare a major. I'm thinking about majoring in Pure Mathematics and double major in Chemistry. Would this be a good combination? I have a 4.0 currently and my best courses were chemistry and mathematics, and I like each a lot. What opportunities for graduate work would be open for me? Any other suggestions?

    I hear Computational Chemists are getting dough, these days.
    Also, Biomolecule Structural studies and what not. It certainly has its strengths, just make sure you get in a lab for something.

    Take real analysis before declaring a math major.

    That is just plain bad advice. There are a bunch of universities who have options within the math major...some of which don't even include analysis to complete the degree.
