You mention potential careers for geology majors but are those really in demands? The news station is flooded with metorologists predicting the weather. Volocanologists are probably only useful in Washington or Hawaii, and civli engineers are not in demand as it was once was. The biggest demands for geologists are mostly in the UN or international affairs I think. If you're in America, most geology work are in academia or research based. But is the state or NSF providing enoughing funding for these researchs to be done? Without a strong demand, there's not enough promotion for these type of geology careers.
