You "can" use the Aviation-whateveritscalled degree, but you have to consider some fairly wide aspects of aviation and it may not get you to the kind of salary that might be necessary to pay back flying loans and the bills, but again, if you are imaginative, it's possible to use it, I know of people who have.

That said, it's a pretty poor degree to get because it's redundant with what you will learn just by flying and achieving your certificates and ratings. There's little real benefit and your time is much better spent on something that is far more marketable, like accounting, business management, safety, and so on.

Flight experience, certificates, type ratings, etc., is what gets you hired as a pilot, not aviation degrees.
