I cant believe they did not give you any suggestions...


1: Math. (Compulsory around here, so not much of a choice.)
2: Physics
3: Statistics
3: Cognition science perhaps?
4: Technically whatever floats your boat...

well i think that physics would be reasonable to minor since there is a game programmer specializing in games physics...

OR film studies or animation since all these are related with game development

We are not communicating very well here.

I asked you two questions.

You answered only one.

So now I ask the second question a third time.

Would you LIKE to minor in Physics? Or film studies? Or animation?

Then you have come up with your own answer.
If you still have difficulty making this decision, read http://www.sloperama.com/advice/m70.htm
