What of my interests would be worth making minors/majors on my planned degree in environmental engineering?
I plan to get a degree in environmental engineering, but I also love biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and non-science-related Spanish. Would it be too difficult, expensive, or otherwise to add any of those as a second major and/or have the remaining be minors? Especially in the case of Spanish, because I would like to continue studying Spanish but is unrelated to the rest of the topics I am interested in. What would, if anything, stop me from pursuing to some degree, all of these subjects?

Congratulations on being interested in finding the right career to follow and finding a relationship between careers and your areas of interests. It takes a special person to enter into a specific career field and meet the demands which that career area presents. The first step is to get to know yourself to see if you share the personality traits which make one successful in that area. The next step is doing networking to meet and talk to and possibly shadow people doing what you might think that you want to do to see if this is something that you really want to do, as a career area could look much different on the inside than it looks from the outside. When I was doing college recruiting, I encountered too many students, who skipped these important steps, and ended up in a career/job for which they were ill suited.
