BUSINESS ENGLISH UPDATE: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "CAREER" AND "DEGREE"?
There is often a lot of confusion for Spanish people about these two words. In general Spanish people like to use "career" a lot because it is like "carrera" in Spanish but it is a false friend because "career" in English means everything that you have done professionally after you finished your education.
If you want to talk about the subject that you studied at university then you need to use the word: "degree".
Hope that helps!
