If universities sacrifice philosophy on the altar of profit, what’s next?

I'm gonna be next level confusing on this, but personally I welcome the secularisation of science and humanities. It is visible that in counties where education is free (europe), liberal arts and media studies and psychology etc. are the most popular (and have the highest prestige), whereas STEM majors are unpopular straight to the level of stigmatisation - contrarily to countries with majorly self-funded programs (US). This differentiation shows a disharmony in these disciplines, making both fields ignorant of their respective material, or their aesthetic implications. Integrating science and humanities instead of separating them, would benefit both worlds and rationalize a lot of the ideological warfare. I was on science major, but i would definitely have died mentally, and had gotten nowhere, had i not done freighthopping in the philosophy department from time to time (which i think is what happened to literally all of my peers, on both ends, although the situation looks a bit different from the other side. Like you can't imagine a hipster media student craving to overhear math or biology lectures. But I am certain there should be a lot to elaborate on the strange setup of these likelihoods.)
