My first degree was in mathematics education (where I developed a deep appreciation for math). I have interests in predictive analytics, "data science", AI, and mathematical and statistical modelling, among other things.

From these interests I have more or less narrowed my choice of major down to two:

1) combined major in mathematics and computer science

or

2) combined major in statistics and computer science

I have been trying to understand how my set of opportunities would differ depending on which of the two majors I choose.

Additionally, I am considering doing graduate studies and so I've been thinking it might be beneficial to go with option (1) math and compsci, and then do a MSc in statistics. However, if I am going to end up in stats anyway, might it be better to simply start there with option (2) for my undergrad?

I would be happy to provide clarification if any of this is too vague or broad :)
