In preparation for the series of quizzes, I've revisited the Capitalization quiz and information link. I can't seem to get my mind around this rule.
The rule states:
We capitalize names of courses: Economics, Biology 101. (However, we would write: "I'm taking courses in biology and earth science this summer.")
In number nine of the quiz, this rule does not apply to "physics course." I was wondering why physics is not capitalized?
9. Didwell somehow managed to get an A in his physics course, but he failed History 104.
Would you capitalize physics if you dropped the word course?
"Didwell somehow managed to get an A in Physics, but he failed History 104."
Also, in number fifteen the word economics is not capitalized. What is the rule here?
15. Tashonda earned a master's degree in business before she went on for a Ph.D. in economics.
