carrera corresponds exactly to "course". Especialidad or
Explanation:
especialización would be "Major". Carrera técnica is a three-year diploma course which can serve as a basis for the 6-year BS (just add 3 years more) and is usually specific to architecture, engineering and related fields. As to "actuaría", it could mean 2 things, preparation for civil service as a clerk of court, or a career as insurance actuary (see your context).

ACTUARIA
SOCIETY OF ACTUARIES http://biblio.pue.udlap.mx/catalogo/catarevis/ATNCSA.HTML

PERFIL DEL ACTUARIO

El Actuario está en capacidad de ejercer una gran variedad de actividades profesionales que van desde la investigación académica hasta la administración integral de grandes compañías y conglomerados económicos. La aplicación de las matemáticas actuariales a toda clase de problemas administrativos prácticos le permite desarrollar una especial habilidad para el análisis rápido y certero de los negocios y, además, adquirir una visión amplia de soluciones. Su contribución será importante en los estudios de diagnóstico de las empresas pero, sin lugar a dudas, el aporte de mayor valor será en los procesos de planeación y toma de decisiones de las compañías. Todas estas características conforman en la actualidad claros factores de éxito en los administradores, directivos y ejecutivos de alto nivel.
