Subjects and disciplines are
commonly divided into the humanities, the social sciences, and
the sciences. The humanities deal primarily with the arts and the
creative results of human thinking. The social sciences include subjects that
deal with human interaction and commerce. The sciences deal with the external
world and the studies that are necessary to understand and manipulate it.
Below, you will find a partial list of these subjects and disciplines. Keep in mind that these distinctions are not hard and fast, because many subjects are interdisciplinary. This means that they fit partly in one category, and partly in another. For example, the field of counseling involves learning intervention techniques (a psychological subject) and also involves the use of statistics (a scientific subject). Our databases are arranged by subject.

To avoid confusion, we placed each discipline within only one subject area. However, many of the disciplines could be listed in more than one subject. History, for example, is often listed under the Humanities subject area.
