How should educational degrees, diplomas and such be capitalized in translations?

I have a text, a short bio, which includes the following:

El señor XXX cuenta con licenciatura en Ciencias de la Educación de la Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos, así como con una Especialidad en Estrategias Psicopedagógicas en la Práctica Docente, Universidad La Salle Campus Cuernavaca, además de un Diplomado en Diseño y elaboración de hipertexto multimedia para la educación superior a distancia y escolarizada, en el Instituto de Ciencias de la Educación del la Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos.

My attempt looks like this:

Mr. XXX holds a bachelor’s degree in Educational Sciences from the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos and a Specialty in Psychopedagogical Strategies in Teaching Practice from La Salle University, Cuernavaca Campus, as well as a diploma in Design and development of multimedia hyperlinks for distance and on-site higher education from the Institute of Educational Sciences of the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos.

Should course names be capitalized in translations?

I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.

In English yes, including Bachelor's degree and the entire sequence following 'Design and Development... assuming that it is all the title of the diploma.
