Dual Major?

I'll be starting the first year of a six-year pharmacy program next year, and I was thinking of possibly double-majoring (even though I've heard that it's pretty stressful, I'd still like to try). What would be a good second major that could build up from pharmacy (to help find a job or something) or serve as a foundation for a different job if I can't find a pharmacy job after I graduate? I'd still like it to be science or math based, but I'm not too sure what the best option would be. . .

    what you like is going to be the best option since major doesn't really matter, and a good job applicant can sell almost any training background to an employer. Off the top of my head though I could see the use of a major in something like chemistry or molecular biology (better understanding of the drugs) or something like economics (better understanding of business for running a pharmacy).
