The answer is to promote STEM, and to give students a realistic picture of what skills are in demand.

I see lots of value in degrees like English, philosophy, business, political science, art history, etc. But it is not what the job market wants. So if students pursue these interests they should double major and get a degree in a science or engineering field as well where the demand is high.

But lets face it humanities degrees are usually pretty easy, science and engineering degrees are usually pretty hard. Students are told that a degree in anything is a magic ticket. So most will pick the easy business degree over the hard chemistry one.
