Theres only one thing you can do: Study, study, study.

Then, when you are nearing completion of your degree, apply apply apply to all the jobs.

Am I fucked?
Nah.

That's not a useful degree, and there's (almost) nothing it will specifically get you into.
The point of finance (and a few others) is just to have *a* degree.

Well its a major in high demand so there's that. Question though, as a finance major how much math do you use? I understand basic math is obviously needed, but I'm majoring in the same thing and I never been good in anything about algebra and geometry. I think calculus is a requirement for me at some point for the major

No one in finance or studying it knows anything about finance. You will be fine.

Some calculus is required for every degree. Which is fine, it's easy.
Easier than algebra. You just find slopes and areas.

There's more memorization involved than algebra, but far less than geometry.

as a finance major how much math do you use?
Do you mean after getting the degree?
Accounting is mostly simple math with obfuscated terminology.

Thanks for the answer senpai.

For the math I meant while getting the degree. I already took statistics, the teacher was a lunatic (literally) and we used a computer program instead of actually learning stats, so I still have almost no knowledge in stats...

I'm not sure if my school/program will let me go straight to calculus when I need it or if I have to work up to it by taking trip and pre-calc.

All pre-Calc does is make sure you've got the basics of algebra down *really well*.
Whether or not you need to take it will probably be based on a standardized test.

so I still have almost no knowledge in stats
Acquire a decent statistics textbook and work through it.
You may or may not need to take a separate analytics course.

And, memorizing jargon aside, that mostly covers the math.

There are meaningful degrees and other boards exist for discussing them.

This is most people.

Should have majored in Economics my nigga, you get a wider perspective and can focus on learning Finance stuff when you need it.

Kek, this is not true at all though. Maybe for the top few.

I work in Chicago and take the metro from the suburbs. It's a 30 min ride and I usually drink my coffee and read at the time. So I end up reading an hour a day going to work and back.

My apartment is $600/month and has 2 bedrooms.

He has a point though. Bernanke got reappointed despite 100% failing to do anything good about the 2008 crash while claiming the fed could handle anything.
Economics as a science is a joke.

What are you talking about?

In the first place, he printed and distributed $17 trillion to bail out the banks.
In the second place, the Federal Reserve Bank is a private business. How is he a politician?

An economics degree is as good as a finance degree, but could have some edge if you sell the mathematical/econometric aspect of the discipline.

Forgot about matrices, but they aren't really *that* abstract.
