    Firstly, sorry if this question is stupid.
    If i was referring to Economics being a social science, would social science have capitals for the Ss?

    Oh, my form tutor told me it did. Would you be able to tell me what cases economics would be in capitals?
    Thanks for your time

    Well, lots of people think that subjects should be capitalised; the fact is they're simply wrong! :p:

    I assume that they believe so because English is always capitalised, for example. However, that's capitalised because it's the name of a language, not because it's a subject, though it happens to be both. Or they'll see economics capitalised on websites and things, but that's only because it's in a headline etc. To be honest, it doesn't matter much either way. I doubt that any prospective tutor would judge you on that -- in fact, most of the buggers don't even bother reading personal statements!
