    Using the article

    When do we use the article and when we dont. Why the following sentence is wrong?


    My studies in the Cognitive science

    It's wrong because we don't use articles before academic subjects.
    I'm studying Psychology.
    Are you interested in Mathematics?
    What do you think of History as a major?

    However, you would use an article here:
    I'm interested in the cognitive sciences of psychology, neurobiology and artificial intelligence.
