True or false: a math major is to a CS major as a CS major is to a psychology major.

CS is just dumbed down math. 3rd and 4th year math tackles concepts not introduced to CS majors until grad school. CS majors like to pretend they have a difficult major, but deep down they know they couldn't handle anything past calculus.

    Sure, CS is math just like cooking is about measuring ingredients.

    CS to math is like Construction Engineering to Physics.

    I majored in both math and CS at my school. I disagree that purity == complexity.

    There’s little dumbing down of math, and it’s more or less the same in many colleges as it is very abstract and able to be generalized to many college courses. The applicability of CS opens up a lot of doors for difficulty.

    Not at all. CS is kind of a weird and poorly defined major in most schools which ends up being a mashup of systems, discrete math, statistics, and software engineering. So really as far as math is concerned it just contains a subset of the concepts you'd learn as a math major,just like an aerospace engineer might understand fluids mechanics but be clueless with regards to quantum mechanics.

  • Math majors are like any physical science major in that iyoull get shitty contract jobs unless you pursue at minimum a masters, preferably a PHD

      Saltiness detected, math majors consistently have highest income potential. In addition, they are first pick for pretty much any grad school.
