Is getting a minor in college worth anything?

I've been oscillating between various permutations of the same majors and minors in college, and I'm trying to figure this out.
Right now, I'm working towards a BS in Economics with minors in Psychology, Sociology, and Computer Science. I'm a bit worried that I'm doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what. I can't talk to an adviser easily because I'm still officially in my school's college of engineering (the result of a bit of confusion over how to do a double major.)
Right now, I'd ideally like to go into research and academia, but I recognize that the job prospects in that field aren't exactly the greatest, so I'd like to leave my options open to a decent job in a field of my interest. I'm a bit confused, overall.
