i'm about to enter my 3rd year, and i have been planning for a physics major during my entire college career, until recently, where i have decided to pursue pure math instead. i may decide to switch back to physics, or pursue mathematical physics, however(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i plan to take for sure this upcoming fall: abstract algebra and numerical analysis.

but i dont know which of these to take: german A (i heard math phD students need to know another foreign language, i dont plan on taking this to fulfill a GE requirement since I've already done so), differential geometry A, quantum mech A, or E&M B. my school uses the trimester system, so 'A' refers to the 1st quarter, and 'B' refers to the second quarter of that class

i plan to take quantum mech A and german A so far, since my school doesnt offer diff geom B until the 3rd quarter (spring), and offers diff geom A again next quarter (winter), so i figure i might as well wait, since i may forget the stuff if i dont take B right after A. also, i kinda look forward to quantum mech A, but it isnt offered again until spring

any advice? i guess what's making this all complicated is that i dont know wheter to pursue mathematical physics or pure math
