Question: As a Computer Science Major Should I do Math or Physics as a Second Major?

Question: As a Computer Science Major Should I do Math or Physics as a Second Major?

I am doing a science/computer science bachelors degree and I have completed the computer science component of the degree as well as a minor in mathematics and (after this semester) a minor in physics. I have enough credit points to complete a major in either math or physics.

I love various areas of computer science, but mostly I love things that are challenging. I love cryptography, algorithm analysis and compiler design (which makes me lean toward math), but I am also very interested in quantum computing (which is more on the physics side) – and which my university has a whole research department.

I don’t have much real world experience so I guess I am asking (overall) which will be more helpful in the world of CS.
