I'm writing a personal statement for graduate admissions, and I've a query regarding the use of capitalization in the midst of sentences. For example, is it correct/expected to capitalize the names of each (specialized) course I've undertaken (viz. should it be "One of my favorite subjects was Computational Geometry" or "One of my favorite subjects was computational geometry")? What about subsequent uses of the term - should I continue capitalizing it? Also, what about more generalized terms (such as "Electrical Engineering") - should they be capitalized as well?
All in all, I'm a bit confused, and afraid of committing a grammatical faux-pas in front of the admissions committee. Any suggestions (with proper reference, if any) would be greatly appreciated!
