Economics or Statistics (Environmental)
I'm a college student who is trying to decide on a second major. My first major is in the humanities, and I feel like it would be nice to have a second "more practical" major.
Due to the amount of time left in school + personal interest, I have narrowed down my choices to either Economics or Environmental Statistics. I'll probably get roughly the same grades in either one. Each would allow me to take some classes I want, and each would require me to take a couple of classes I don't particularly want to take, each to about the same degree. If I major in Environmental Statistics, I may also be able to get an economics minor. If I major in Economics, it is possible, though unlikely, that I would also be able to get a math minor.
Does anyone have any advice on which major choice would be better? And, perhaps most importantly, is one a significantly better choice than the other? I imagine Economics is probably the better choice career-wise, but if I decided to go the other route, would Environmental Statistics not look anywhere close to as good on a resume?
Also, does anyone think that a second major isn't that big of a deal, and that perhaps simply minors in Economics and Math would look just about as good as a second major?
Thank you for the help!
