No they haven't. They have been replaced with coding, computer engineering, and hard sciences, by people who continuously devalue humanities courses because their view of higher education is as job training.
These reactionary "woe-is-me" statements are far removed from reality.

No matter what university system you're referring to, few, if any, universities- even those explicitly focused on technical disciplines- require students to take classes in "coding, computer engineering, and hard sciences." Nobody's "devaluing" the humanities to any unreasonable extant. Nobody's out to get you.

In fact, most (practically all) universities do have burdensome humanities requirements for their students, even when such requirements are excessive, socially problematic, and unreasonable. Just because offerings are no longer limited to the white male canon doesn't mean the humanities are being ignored.

It's not the health food, it's the 3 star guide Michelin french chef food.
You do realize that this type of smugly (and unjustifiably) superior attitude is a factor in the "average Joe's" distaste towards the notion of "classical music", do you? Such claims aren't any more than value judgements (very bold, disputable ones, in this case) and shouldn't be taken as absolute fact, as you seem to be doing here.
