Is Maths with French a useful course?Watch
I am considering studying Maths with French at uni (this would be Maths as a major component and French as a minor) but wondering whether it would be a useful degree? Any advice/opinions would be appreciated!
So in general employment terms, yes, in specific academic opportunities, very much so. Although it's worth noting, if your plan is to generally go into business in France following maths you should definitely consider doing a masters (or indeed, diplome d'ingenieur, which despite the name can specialise in mathematics, particularly at the ENS's and l'X) at a grandes ecoles. If you end up becoming a French citizen you could always try the agregation as well, and potentially get a reasonably well paid civil service job for life, teaching (which may include teaching analysis/algebra to post secondary students in the CPGE, who will be very attentive as to their minds this teaching may well hold their future in the balance). Also just getting agregation then continuing on in academia and getting a PhD (anywhere) would be a significant feather in your cap (like Part III at Cambridge, which you could also theoretically do before/after this).
