Does choosing a degree in a specific engineering discipline narrow your opportunities?

When choosing a degree, does it matter a great deal which discipline you choose, or can you work for an aerospace engineering company with a mechanical engineering degree? Also, does choosing a job as say a chemical engineer force you to live in a large city, or can you still live elsewhere?...

If you get two degrees and you find a job that you like but the degree that would be more useful to the job is the minor, will the company be less likely to hire you because it's a minor and not major?

I am asking this because I am thinking whether or not it is a smart choice to do a double major and what would happen if the minor would end up being more use to me. #college #college-major #college-minor...
