English term or phrase: Program vs Plan
Good evening,

I'm translating an academic record from the California State University and I don't know how to translate these terms as they can be easily misunderstood in the Spanish context.

In the document the term appears as follows: 'Program: Undergraduate Degree', that's why I don't know if it corresponds to "Plan de estudios" or "Programa educativo", as 'undergraduate degree' refers to "Título universitario".

The same happens with the term 'Plan', which is associated in the document to 'Major in Spanish' and 'Minor in Latin'. I don't if I should translate the term as "Grado" or "Carrera". I'm quite lost really.

Thanks for your help,

Sin más contexto tal vez me esté aventurando, pero con traducir "programa" y "plan", no creo que tengas mayor problema.

Saludos cordiales.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I think "plan" refers to "plan de estudios" as I've found that this term has to do with the different degrees studied at a university. In this case this "plan de estudios" is for Medicine:
