Why don't colleges/universities provide majors that only have a high likelihood of getting its graduates jobs?

In other words, why don't colleges/universities give students the option of choosing majors that have a high chance of helping the students to find jobs after college? So, that people won't criticize students for choosing a "bad" or "wrong" major (low likelihood of leading to jobs).

The answer is quite simple: money. Sadly, some schools are more motivated by money from student's tuition rather than adding value to the society. Otherwise, some college majors would have been phased out by now.

A different perspective on the other hand is on education. You are in college/universities to learn; job hunting, is often no longer the school's responsibility. That's quite sad but it is how it is.

There's an interesting music video about the lack of practical subjects in school; those which will actually be used in real life.

They do, but at the end of the day it's a business. And some people honestly love to do what they're going into. Like someone else said, one of the main purposes of an education is to gain knowledge and experience.
MsBittner:
The purpose of an education is not the getting of jobs. It's the gaining of knowledge.
tro:
that's not the purpose of higher education, they are to offer courses for the betterment of the minds of students, if this leads to good paying jobs all well and good except for the professionals who have to have specific education for their profession
each student choose any and all courses he wants if he chooses courses that do not prepare him for a good paying job that is his problem

Because the "business" of higher education is to "sell" their "commodity" to as many "consumers" as possible. With "market saturation" in the undergraduate sector … market research predicts graduate degrees are the future "must have" career accessories.
Bob:
