I think science is more important than English nowadays. The technology is developing much faster than before; as a result, English is no longer useful. People can only make progress by studying science.
( Forewarning: I respect all academic fields of study... except Women's Studies) I respectfully have to disagree. The world would not have gotten to this point of rapid scientific progress if not for English. Without it, how would we express our discoveries in Science to the world or express ideas. Or learn and think creatively, and critically. Scientific innovations inspired by works of science-fiction alone include; Holograms, The GPS, Tablets, Atomic Power, Cellphones, Translators.
