Hey there! It's great to see someone who's passionate about math! There are a lot of exciting majors that involve math, ranging from traditional routes to more unique options. Some popular math-related majors include:

1. Mathematics (Pure or Applied)

2. Actuarial Science

3. Statistics

4. Operations Research

5. Financial Mathematics

If you're looking for something unique, you might want to consider these options:

1. Cryptography (focuses on coding and decoding information)

2. Mathematical Biology (applying mathematical techniques to biological systems)

3. Mathematical Physics (combining math and physics to study the natural world)
