Is it correct to capitalize your major name when it's not a language?

good question.  i don't believe i mention my major in my ps, but i capitalize it in my applications.  i would probably do the same in my ps, however, my major is Latin American Studies.

depends... if it is PHILOSOPHY, then it is all caps, communications definitely stays in the lower case.

Really?  Mine is Political Science.  And Classics.  And a Management minor.

Actually, it's:
political science (sorry, I know...)
But I also minored in Theater Studies and Cultural Anthropology!
Interdisciplinary, right?  Please like me...   :-\

Is it in lower case because you don't like it?  Why is Theater Studies capitalized and Poli Sci isn't?

Uhmmm, why would you waste space and include your major in PS?  It's already stated elsewhere in your application.

It's not like I just said, "I'm a Political Science major."  You haven't read my PS; don't assume it's a waste of space.  It has to do with who I am, what I learned, and how it's relevant to law school.
