Paul’s Answer

There are several options that you can potentially take, especially if you are very good at a STEM subject like Geometry. Many advisors will more than likely direct you towards something in the field of engineering, which is fine, but I would also look at some of the other majors, or even sub majors within certain subject areas. this includes:

Computer Science or Graphic Design:

There is a huge need for these kinds of majors, especially ones who specialize in the subject of Geometry. Whether it be video games or 3-D imaging, an understanding of geometry will be required to create images and shapes that we see on a computer screen or in the final product

Robotics:

You will find this in one of the Engineering programs at various college and universities around the nation. An understanding of angles and arcs is required to be successful in the field of Robotics. Making robots move successfully and understanding the technology and how Geometry can be applied to it is needed. So a major in Engineering with an emphasis in Robotics.

Medical Technology

Majors that include emphasis in Medical Imaging and CAT Scans is also a possible option for a Geometry person. Geometry is also used in reconstruction of bones, muscles and other organs. So a major in Medical Technology or Medical Imaging is a strong option.

Construction and Civil Engineering

Our country needs people, who can design and build our infrastructure. This includes docks, bridges, roads, hydroelectric dams, and other energy related projects. So something in the area of Civil Engineering. People will also be need to survey these projects, so surveying is an are to take as far as a potential specialization.

Astronomy

There is a lot to still be discovered out in the last frontier. Astronomers are working on the next projects heading to the Moon and the other planets in the solar system. Plus, many college and universities need professors for research and teaching opportunities.

Education

There are many opportunities in education for individuals, who are strong in STEM subjects. This includes not only secondary school, but as stated above the college and university system.

There are a large number of things you can take, as far as a major. It can be engineering, or one of its specializations, science, education, medicine, business, and other potential subjects. I hope this has provided some insight to help you in you future selection. Best of luck in your future achievements.

Paul recommends the following next steps:

Review college catalogs and see which ones offer the programs which interest you.
Talk to a college advisor and tell them your interest in pursuing a major that includes Geometry
Establish an academic plan with an advisor, which will follow a pathway towards your selected major
Go to a college employment center on campus, and research jobs that heavily utilize Geometry and math skills

Charlie’s Answer

Deciding a major is a very personal decision and should involve pursuing something you are passionate about doing as a profession. If you like geometry that is a great data point because math is used in a wide array of fields and their are many math majors to pick from. I recommend you look at this website: https://blog.collegevine.com/math-majors-in-college/

The good thing is you do not have to select a major on your own, seek help from an academic advisor. Advisors have help many students and they may be aware of new degree opportunities. You need to be prepared prior to speaking with an advisor because they have limited time (have a list of questions ready). You should know at a minimum: 1. What are you interested in? 2. What are you good at? 3. What are you passionate about? 4. Do you have good study habits and skills or are you willing to put in the work to develop good skills? According to a BestColleges study from 2020, 3 in 5 college graduates would change their majors if they could go back.

Definitely talk with an academic advisor, multiple times if needed. Enjoy the process of deciding what major you are going to pursue!!! You are going to spend many hours studying, researching, reading, and working in this field....make it something you like to do!!!

Hassan’s Answer

Certainly as Charlie mentioned Math could be on top of that list. I would also explore Mechanical Engineering and Architecture which I believe rely on heavy geometry. Maybe game design since a lot of it is 3D geometry based.

You definitively want to spend a lot of time researching what jobs you may like and enjoy. Then understand what majors they primarily hire and based on that potentially decide your major.

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. I am glad to hear that you are interested in Maths especially Geometry. There are many jobs that may be Maths related, e.g. Research in universities on Geometry, Maths Teacher, Engineering, Architecture, etc. It really depends on what you are intereted on. Would you like to do research or teaching or some creativity kind of work?
I suggest you could consider the approach below :
1. Find out more on the relevant jobs that is relevant to geometry and shortlist a few of them
2. Speak to someone working in the industry or seek advice from the career conseller in your school or your parents
3. Shortlist 1-2 career you would like to pursue
4. Explore the entry criteria of the college and decide the minor you would like to take that is relevant to the selected career
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
