When writing about academic subjects such as sociology or Urban Planning, when do we capitalize and when do we use lowercase? Thanks.

Dear Wingspread,

Hope this helps:

1. The Sociology 211 lectures are boring. ( a specific sociology subject)

2. I have never liked sociology. (a general reference to sociology)

The above rule is helpful, but remember that any field related to a language should always be capitalized. Thus:

1. The English 211 lecture was boring. (a specific English subject)
2. I never liked English. ( a general reference to English)
