Good day gents, I am applying for USMC PLC-Juniors and am a theoretical mathematics major. I recently discovered that my campus has a security and intelligence degree program, which you have to minor in a foreign language (Russian, Chinese, Arabic, Spanish, Somali etc.) My question is this, I am a ground contract applicant with the goal of becoming a 0302, which degree will be more useful, in terms of serving my potential Marines: Theoretical (pure) Mathematics or Security and Intelligence? THEORETICAL (PURE) MATHEMATICS: Also known as “pure” mathematics, theoretical mathematics explores the basic concepts and structure beneath many math topics ranging from geometry to analysis. SECURITY AND INTELLIGENCE: The Security & Intelligence major focuses on the changing nature of conflict and war both as we enter the 21st century and in the aftermath of the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center. State-on-state war is no longer the only major threat to personal and national security. Conventional war, terrorism, biological warfare, environmental degradation, economic espionage, trans-national crime and information theft are among the more prominent threats with which individuals and states now have to deal.
