An Earth Science degree can be your stepping-stone to a very lucrative, productive, and satisfying career in the earth sciences. But don't take my word for it. Find geology-jobs, and see for yourself. What's hot these days? Consider a dual-degree or graduate work in the following subjects:
geology (BS) - computer science (BS) Database programming, GIS.
A graduate with a BS in earth science (aka geology) can expect to earn $25,000 to $50,000 per year, depending on where you live. With a MS, you can expect to start at $30,000 to $60,000 per year. Most PhD's go into research positions which pay anywhere from $35,000 to $70,000 per year.
