What college majors are expendable?

Outdoor learning at Humboldt State University

Humboldt State University, part of the California State University system and located on the state’s northern coast, needs to cut its budget. Among the programs under consideration for elimination are these: philosophy, chemistry,  physics, fisheries biology and oceanography. Does every college need a philosophy department? What about chemistry? What majors should be offered at every school?
