I am trying to describe the individual components of a a list of academic degrees:
BS Information Technology
The first 'word' is a two-letter code indicating the degree level (associate's, bachelor's, etc.).
Is there a word to describe the remaining content of the degree? Normally, I hear this described as "An Associate's Degree in Accounting", or "my bachelor's in Sociology." Other words I have considered but am unsure about include:
I am looking for a word or phrase that could complete any or all of the following sentences:
"The _____ of my associate's degree is Accounting"
"The _____ of my bachelor's degree is Sociology"
"The _____ of my master's degree is Education"
EDIT: A bit more context for my request - I am constructing a database holding information about a university, and trying to name the field containing the second portion of the values listed above (Accounting, Marketing, etc.)
