i failed my abstract algebra course this semester and I'm majoring in applied mathematics. This is the first course that I've ever failed that is a requirement for my major. i really like abstract algebra,and i really like math , but i did not like my professor very much because he did not break the material down very well for me. I have to admit, I slacked off these last couple of weeks as well. I'm going to retake it over again and tried to earn a better grade . Now that i failed my first major course, financial issues aside, I 'm not sure if i should major in math or minor in math. I really like math , but I like physics a eensy bit more than math and to be honest, my initial consideration for majoring in applied math was because their are more jobs available for a person with a BS in applied math than their are for a BS in physics. I still want to apply to graduate school for physics, but in the mean time , I need a job between the time I'm out of college and the time before i enter graduate school to pay for college loans. I really want to pursue my degree in math as well as physics, but do any of you think my pursuit for a degree in math is worthless now since I failed a abstract algebra and should just pursue a minor in math?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
