      This phrase encompasses the major goal of all education. These are the things that move society and science forward and that is why people are educated. Currently, we have many majors that simply are not very useful in our world. These go against the goal of education which is to progress society. More education does not necessarily correlate with advancement of society; there needs to be education in the right areas. This is not to say only STEM majors are important, but rather that majors must have a realistic purpose in life. Majors such as Religion and Gender Studies have a few niche areas where they are important, but those should be limited to the amount of people. We should be encouraging people to study more in business, social sciences, and physical sciences so that our world and society will continue to advance. -Ryan Keane
