You can be an economist if you're really into economics (apparently an economics major is uncommon compared to other such degrees in that you don't have to have a graduate degree to become a professional). If you're unsure, you may want to go a bit broader; there are lots of courses that are economics combined with other stuff eg. PPE (Philosophy, Politics, and Economics), Politics and Economics, Philosophy and Economics, Computer Science and Economics, etc.
