A question on abstract nouns

Hi all,

I am wondering whether words like 'geology' or 'biology' could be classified
as abstract nouns.

I think there is a distinction between the word 'study' as in 'study is good
for the mind' (study being an abstract here) and 'earth/life study' (a
specific type of study and therefore not an abstract).

Please advise!
