Fine Arts


Explanation:
Sometimes, the subject of degree certificates are best left untranslated as there is no 100% equivalence (Aparejador, Arquitecto Técnico Graduado Social, etc.). However, the equivalence between "Bellas Artes" and "Fine Arts" is absolute and unequivocal. Therefore, it should be translated as "Fine Arts."
Cf. Collins Spanish Dictionary.

just Arts


Explanation:
The National Endowment of the Arts, the equivalent to the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes in Mexico, uses the term "Arts" or "the Arts", so I would guess the major would be in Arts.

Just a thought, hope it helps, good luck!
