Default airlines don't care?

I disagree and agree with skyhigh on a few points. I graduated with a degree in flight ops. Companies do not look at it and say that is useless right away. It depends on the school that you have received it from. If you get it from an accredited university such as Purdue, Daniel Webster, UND, FSU then it is a structured aviation program where you not only learn how to fly but learn the background behind the business. You also learn different aspects of the industry such as corporate and international ops at most schools.

A degree in aviation is not usless to say the least.

But I do agree that other degrees are as good as an aviation degree. One is not going to put you over the other is this industry. They are looking for a degree and that they can fly with you for a few days at a time.
