So i'm trying to decide whether i should do the Acturial Science/Finance Option, or if it would just be better doing acturial science major with a minor in economics What do you guys think, which would employers see to be more useful to them.

yeah but I have to select my courses in a couple months and my friend says if I want to go with the acturial science finance I HAVE to take AFM101 first term, but if I want to do acturial science with a minor in economics, I don't need AFM101 and can take a different elective:).
