How should I properly capitalize the sentence:
'I have a masterís degree in social science and a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science'?
I've looked in the New York Times and Google but I'm not sure how I should capitalize the names of the degrees and the fields of specialization?
I'm not sure how the degrees are there, but you should try to keep it consistent. If you abbreviate bachelor of science, then abbreviate the master's too. If it's social science I assume it's master of arts? Also, I would capitalise 'Social Science' since it is the name of your degree, so:
'I have a(n) MA degree in Social Science and a BSc degree in Comupter Science.'
The 'n' is in brackets because I think it's personal choice - whether you spell 'MA' or say 'Master of Arts'. Also, if you put a full stop in the abbreviation - M.A., B.Sc. - then do that. I don't know American conventions.
