Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently halfway through my undergraduate in Physics, and planning to go to graduate school in 2 years or so. I initially wanted to do Astronomy as an undergrad but I was told doing Physics in undergrad is much better. This wasn't a problem because I loved and still love Physics. I'm considering either picking up an Astronomy double degree or a Mathematics double degree but i'm not sure which to pick. I finished all of differential/integral calculus and I could take some analysis classes next year, but I'm really not sure what mathematics Graduate school really wants for Astronomers (or Astrophysicists..i'm really not sure what the difference is).

I know Astronomy requires all the undergrad physics + general relativity. I studied special relatively and the mathematics were very basic.

Can anyone help me in choosing the 2nd degree?

Thanks,
