Main Question or Discussion Point

If someone is to not go to graduate school, which degree is better? Which degree provides more job opportunites? Keep in mind I know there are not many, and this is not my situation. I'm just curious.

Why not try for a double in Applied Math and Physics? That's what I have, and there was only an extra year of work involved. As for job opportunities, teachers are always in short supply (especially for math). There is an abundance of technology jobs, but not a lot for entry level (even with graduate degrees), or so the ads say. You're college's career center if they have one) is a great resource for jobs.

If you're looking for something that will allow you to apply mathematics and physics, have you checked out engineering?
