    I'm sorry marcus, but as you probably know by now, familiarity with the main ideas of string theory and supersymmetry is pretty much mandatory for all students planning to go into theoretical physics, so courses in strings and supersymmetry continue to be a standard part of college syllubi (in fact, with the publication of barton zweibachs new book "a first course in superstring theory". it is being worked into the undergraduate curriculum as well. On the other hand, there's never been any interest in training students in any of the other approaches to quantizing gravity. You seem to be in denial about this.
